Don't rule out Linux for the Cloud. For example, it's been reported that Canonical COO Matt Asay recently said, "We're now tracking 12,000 active deployments of UEC and we're adding 200 every single day. These are active installations. These aren't people who downloaded it once and kicked the tires for a few days then dropped it."
There's always the pesky payment problem, and Asay was quoted as saying that Canonical wants to be "more aggressive" in converting free installations to paid.
These remarks came at the end of a week that saw the world's largest Cloud Computing event ever held, Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, which attracted some 5,000 delegates and more than 100 exhibitors.
A Rock Star Faculty, Top Keynotes, Sessions, and Top Delegates!
The growth and success of Cloud Computing will be on display at the upcoming Cloud Expo conferences and exhibitions in Prague June 21-22 and Santa Clara November 1-4.
The recent Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York City was the largest Cloud Computing conference ever produced, more sponsors, exhibitors and delegates than all other Cloud events of the year combined!
The four-day Santa Clara event will attract more than 6,000 delegates from 48 countries and over 200 sponsors and exhibitors on a 120,000 sq ft show floor, larger than Cloud Expo 201 East, New York City event!
All main layers of the Cloud ecosystem will be represented in the6th and 7th International Cloud Expo - the infrastructure players, the platform providers, and those offering applications, and they'll all be here to speak, sponsor, exhibit and network.
"Cloud Expo was announced on February 24, 2007, the day the term ‘cloud computing' was coined," said Fuat Kircaali, founder and chairman of SYS-CON Events, Inc. "Cloud has become synonymous with ‘computing' and ‘software' in two short years, and this event has become the new PC Expo, Comdex, and InternetWorld of our decade. By 2012, more than 50,000 delegates per year will attending Cloud Expo."
