May. 8, 2012 02:46 PM
The European Commission has just published a report entitled Advances in Clouds - Research in Future Cloud Computing where a Group of Experts provides a state-of-the-art view on cloud computing technologies, its position in and its relevance for Europe. The Group of Experts was conveyed in 2011 and includes representatives from major Cloud players, like IBM, NEC, Google, Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, France Telecom, Oracle, British Telecom, or T-Systems. The report brings valuable information for people defining Cloud Computing strategies, developing innovative research lines, or exploring emerging market opportunities beyond today's Clouds.
The report features OpenNebula as one of the most widely used platform to build cloud infrastructures, and elaborates on OpenNebula and OpenStack as open cloud managers addressing different types of cloud needs, and implementing different distribution models and interoperability strategies. Both, OpenNebula and OpenStack, deliver fully open-source software to build IaaS clouds, released under Apache license, and developed with an open and transparent process over the Internet. However, the report highlights relevant differences between both projects:
Clearly, different open source cloud management tools will coexist and fit together in a broader cloud ecosystem.
