Unlocking the Promise of Open Cloud Computing via OpenStack

"Just as standards and open source revolutionized the Web and Linux, they will also have a tremendous impact on cloud computing," said Robert LeBlanc, IBM SVP of Software (pictured below), as IBM - one of the world's largest private cloud vendors with more than 5,000 private cloud customers in 2012 - last month announced that its cloud services and software will be based on an open cloud architecture, including OpenStack. "IBM has been at the forefront of championing standards and open source for years," LeBlanc continued, "and we are doing it again for cloud computing. The winner here will be customers, who will not find themselves locked into any one vendor - but be free to choose the best platform based on the best set of capabilities that meet their needs."

A New Bubble?

We all remember the Internet bubble back in 1999-2000 era. Start-ups were getting huge valuations. The joke then was – if you are 27 years old and not a millionaire, then you are a failure. All you needed was a sign-board saying “new internet company” and stand on Sand Hill Road. Several cars will stop and within hours, you should have a check worth millions as investment. This is an exaggeration of course. Jeff Bezos of Amazon even said – we spell profit as “prophet”. Then the bubble burst one day and the debris was huge. Hundreds of B2C and B2B companies went belly up. Now after a decade, we see a bit of a bubble again. The landscape is somewhat different. There is no rush to an IPO, which was the only way to make the founders and investors very rich. Now there is a secondary market that buys stocks off the founders and early employees (and some investors as well)... (more)

MAX 2006 Show Report - Kevin Lynch's Day One Keynote

There's always an inherent danger, for any company getting behind a meta-theme like "revolutionizing how the world engages with ideas and information ­ anytime, anywhere and through any medium," that it has defined a wish rather than a reality. The thousands of developers assembled in the keynote hall of The Sands Expo Center here in Las Vegas are undoubtedly united in a desire to decide for themselves which applies. This morning they got their chance. After a wonderfully upbeat, up-tempo performance by current Las Vegas live-act sensation Blue Man Group, the opening keynote by Senior Vice President and Chief Software Architect Kevin Lynch began. At what he termed "the largest MAX to date," Lynch reminded delegates that there are 300 different team members from Adobe at MAX. Right from the get-go he demoed Acrobat Reader 8, which allowed a chance to mention ColdFusio... (more)

Today's Networks Not Yet Ready for Enterprise Cloud

Enterprise networks are not ready for broad enterprise cloud IT services a la Nicholas Carr. As network and IT practitioners gathered in Las Vegas (Interop) and tech thought leaders conveyed on San Diego (Future in Review) the week of May 18th, there was more than a weave of flights running between them related to the timing and impact of cloud computing on the enterprise IT industry. It was clear from a multitude of thought leaders, vendors and data center professionals that today’s networks are not ready for the deployment of many forms of cloud computing, especially the multi-site enterprise (or private) cloud. This is both an opportunity and risk for investors and companies who could prosper or suffer through the coming transformation of IT. In between two panels I caught plenty of hallway conversations about the potential victors of ITs coming transformation; ... (more)
