Eucalyptus started out in academics, but has a solid business plan for making its "infrastructure as a service" open-source platform the center of the cloud-computing universe.
Open source is driving development of the cloud. My picks for the most interesting software of 2008 are Hadoop and Eucalyptus.
Eucalyptus is a relatively new open source project that aims to let you build your own Cloud
Ranting about the Cloud is alot more fun than doing real work.
Company turns down an e-book reader for the App Store because it lets you search for and download a text-only version of the ancient Indian book on sexuality.
I'm amazed that companies still base their businesses on open source software they neither own nor contribute to.
The shift means that Eucalyptus--once the core cloud for Ubuntu--has been sidelined in favor of OpenStack.
Start-up founded by ex-Amazon developers raises big money to bring their private-cloud software to market.
App Store initially rejected the Eucalyptus app because it offered access to a text-only version of the Kama Sutra.
Is private cloud risky, or just annoying to deal with right now? If you want to go for a private cloud you have to be prepared to handle a certain level of difficulty, or trade money for time.
