The Linux Foundation Releases New Open Cloud Report

Date 2013/10/21 7:57:56 | Topic: Company News

The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux and collaborative development, today announced the immediate release of a new report "Understanding the Open Cloud: Open Cloud Projects Profiled."
The paper is being released today at the first-ever CloudOpen Europe where it will be discussed and from which input will be gathered to inform future updates to the paper. CloudOpen was originally hosted in North America in 2012 and brings together all of the open source projects supporting the cloud in one place where developers, users and vendors can learn more about them and understand how best to collaborate.

Cloud computing, like Linux, is fueling dramatic enterprise innovation and growth, which in turn is spurring a worldwide transformation of the technology space. As a result, there are many open source projects emerging to support the cloud and more being created every day. The Linux Foundation's new report aims to help users and developers understand the open cloud ecosystem, including what is the open cloud, what are the projects that comprise it and how to get involved.

The paper is not intended to be a comprehensive survey of all potentially related projects; rather, it is a starting point from which users can begin to assess the building blocks for an open cloud. To download the full report, please visit The Linux Foundation's Publication's website:
