OpenStack OpenStack is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. The project aims to deliver solutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, massively scalable, and feature rich. The technology consists of a series of interrelated projects delivering various components for a cloud infrastructure solution. Who's behind OpenStack? Founded by Rackspace Hosting and NASA, OpenStack has grown to be a global software community of developers collaborating on a standard and massively scalable open source cloud operating system. Our mission is to enable any organization to create and offer cloud computing services running on standard hardware.

ISO/IEC 27017 cloud security Introduction This standard will provide guidance on the information security elements of cloud computing, recommending and assisting with the implementation of cloud-specific information security controls supplementing the guidance in ISO/IEC 27002 and indeed other ISO27k standards including ISO/IEC 27018 on the privacy aspects of cloud computing, ISO/IEC 27031 on business continuity, and ISO/IEC 27036-4 on relationship management, as well as all the other ISO27k standards. Scope and purpose The standard will be a code of practice offering additional controls implementation advice beyond that provided in ISO/IEC 27002. The standard will offer information security advice for both cloud service customers and cloud service providers, offering guidance for both parties side-by-side in each section e.g. the draft of section 6.1.1 on information security roles and responsibilities says, in part: Other information for cloud computing

DevStack Official Title: DevStack Core Team (devstack-core): Chmouel Boudjnah, Dean Troyer, Gary Kotton, Ian Wienand, James Blair, Sean Dague As of 19Aug2014 'DevStack is part of the QA program. Mission Statement CloudStack Project Incubation Status This page tracks the project status, incubator-wise. For more general project status, look on the project website. The CloudStack project graduated on 2013-03-20 jroller JavaZone 2009, Qi4j and the DDD panel The DDD panel during JavaZone 2009, which is available here, was very interesting to listen to. Here are some random notes related to it. Ubiquitous language One question was whether it was possible to have the domain model use one language, like Norwegian, and then implement that in English in the code.

Red Hat - Open Shift OpenShift gives developers more choice—of interfaces, languages, frameworks, services, clouds, elasticity, and infrastructure. It also offers multiple interaction models, which let developers use a rich set of command-line tools, a powerful multidevice web console, or an Eclipse-based IDE like Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio. Scale applications automatically to handle increased traffic and demand on your applications. Through OpenShift, you can deploy an application with scaling either enabled or disabled. If you deploy your application with scaling disabled, what you deploy is what you'll have, whether it's in 1 gear or several.

Azure WebJobs are awesome and you should start using them right now! No really, they’re totally awesome! I used Azure WebJobs in the very early days and whilst they served a purpose, I wasn’t blown away with them at the time. In fact I went on to use Worker Roles for the back end paste processing behind Have I been pwned? (HIBP) and whilst they served me well, there were also aspects that weren’t as slick as what the broader Azure ecosystem is. Recently I had cause to build another back end process for HIBP (one I’ll talk more about in detail in a later post) so I thought I’d come back and visit WebJobs again.

Deploying vert.x Applications to Cloud Foundry NOTE: Modified to use 0.8.2 version of cloudfoundry-runtime dependency together with the version of vert.x (Jan 2, 2013) Developers can now use vert.x, a framework for highly scalable web applications, with Cloud Foundry has been a leader in providing an open Platform as a Service (PaaS), which allows for polyglot programming with a choice of multiple languages and frameworks. With recent releases of standalone application feature and Java 7 on, developers now have a perfect environment to create vert.x applications, which can be written in any language that can run on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and deploy them to run on the JVM at About vert.x vert.x is a framework that builds on event-driven architecture and asynchronous I/O, similar to

Web 3.0: The Third Generation Web is Coming by Lifeboat Foundation Scientific Advisory Board member Nova Spivack. Overview The Web is entering a new phase of evolution. There has been much debate recently about what to call this new phase. Some would prefer to not name it all, while others suggest continuing to call it “Web 2.0”.
