Who will build the open source cloud?

Filed under
Software

I wrote recently about the potential of open source software as a platform for cloud computing. Since then I’ve been involved in a couple of conversations with prospective cloud users that have further highlighted the opportunity for an open source cloud.

The conversations involved big companies with substantial budgets/IT costs, truly mission-critical applications and a tendency towards being early adopters. Suffice to say they are interested in cloud computing as an opportunity to lower costs and improve the efficiency of their IT systems.

However, they also want to prove the model and technologies internally before they are prepared to migrate significant workloads to the cloud.
