RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

"In the past, it was cloud providers like Rackspace who tended to focus on open source cloud infrastructure, while enterprises tended to make more conservative choices where support contracts were available.


The new support from Citrix, along with about 60 other supporting commercial hardware and software vendors, should go a long way towards helping enterprises see OpenStack as an enterprise-grade choice of cloud infrastructure. Enterprises can now get a Citrix-certified version of OpenStack and a cloud-optimized version of XenServer, and Dell is providing a reference server architecture.



Rackspace Cloud Builders can design and build a private cloud for an enterprise using the OpenStack project with Project Olympus."
