From last week’s conference on the open cloud, Professor Roberto Di Cosmo’s presentation on the scientific challenges that poses the cloud:
From yesterday’s conference on the Open Cloud, a presentation by Jean-Paul Smets, cofounder of the Free Cloud Alliance:
Jean-Paul presented the Free Cloud Alliance, which now has seven members, its goals and values.
He gave demos of the Niftyname IaaS GUI (Zigui), as well as a video showing the SlapGrid “home based” cloud computing solution, that promisses to “combine economies of scale typical of Cloud environments and cancel the Law of diminishing returns. ”
Stay tuned, or subscribe to the RSS feed, to be alerted when the other presentations will be available. (Slideshare seems to have some issues today).
The Free Cloud Alliance was launched today “to provide access to source code and native data and prevent vendor lock-in on cloud-based infrastructures”.
The founding projects are: NiftyName Virtual Datacenter (NVD), Block Storage Server (BS2), Xtreem Storage Server (XS2), NEO Storage Server (NS2), SLAP Cloud Engine (SCE) and TioLive OEM Platform (TOP).
