Cloud.com and OpenStack code will merge

Date: Jun 15, 2011

Cloud.com is making moves and beginning to merge OpenStack code with its cloud management framework according to CMO Pedar Ulander. He also discusses why IT pros will continue to move to the cloud and ways to use virtualization the right way in this week’s episode of Cloud Cover TV.

We discuss:

  • Underlying theme and shift toward cloud computing will stick even when the coolness factor goes away
  • OpenStack versus Cloud.com
  • Shift is the storage service from OpenStack, Cloud.com is building the management framework around that for service providers
  • Federated management of resource pools across clouds
  • Eventually the Cloud.com and OpenStack code bases will merge
  • What about backwards compatibility, parity between the code bases as enterprises don’t want to support multiple stacks
  • Open source vendors lining up behind OpenStack
  • Cloud.com customers include KT Telecom, Zynga, Nokia Research Labs
  • Zynga’s private called, Z Cloud, is based on Cloud.com
  • How to get smarter with virtualization, better utilization of resources
  • One sys admin per 1,000 boxes
