Open Cloud Report Released by Linux Foundation

21 October 2013 No Comment

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.

Projects profiled in the new paper include:

Hypervisor & Container
* KVM
* Xen Project

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
* Apache CloudStack
* Eucalyptus
* OpenNebula
* OpenStack

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
* Cloud Foundry
* Docker.io
* OpenShift

Provisioning & Management
* Chef
* Puppet
* Salt
* Vagrant
* Juju
* oVirt

Storage
* Ceph
* Gluster

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.
