About Apache CloudStack Apache CloudStack is a top-level project of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). The project develops open source software for deploying public and private Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds. CloudStack provides an open and flexible cloud orchestration platform to deliver reliable and scalable private and public clouds. What's that mean, exactly? Apache CloudStack is a Java-based project that provides a management server and agents (if needed) for hypervisor hosts so that you can run an IaaS cloud. Some, but not all, of the features and functionality provided by CloudStack: DVCS-Autosync: A personal Dropbox replacement based on Git Executive summary dvcs-autosync is a project to create an open source replacement for Dropbox/Wuala/Box.net/etc. based on distributed version control systems (DVCS). It offers nearly instantaneous mutual updates when a file is added or changed on one side but with the added benefit of (local, distributed) versioning and that it does not rely on a centralized service provider, but can be used with any DVCS hosting option including a completely separate server - your data remains your own. Synchronization of directories is based on DVCS repositories.

Cloudkick, manage servers better Monitor anywhere With Rackspace Cloud Monitoring, you can monitor your websites—whether they're hosted on the Rackspace public cloud, Rackspace dedicated servers, servers in your data centers, or even servers in other providers' data centers. Send alerts to your laptop or smartphone to stay on top of your entire infrastructure, including websites, ports, protocols, and more. The Past, Present, and Future of Data Storage As we approach the end of 2011 and look forward to another year, we pause to reflect on the long history of data storage. Mankind's ability to create, process, store, and recall information is light years ahead of the days of cave paintings and engravings on stone tablets. Vast amounts of information can be stored on drives smaller than your thumb, and data centers are cropping up at an increasingly high rate. What does the future of data storage hold? Are we really that close to holographic drives? Is 2012 the year SSDs become mainstream?

Puppet Open Source: IT Automation Software for System Administrators Puppet Open Source is a flexible, customizable framework available under the Apache 2.0 license designed to help system administrators automate the many repetitive tasks they regularly perform. As a declarative, model-based approach to IT automation, it lets you define the desired state - or the “what” - of your infrastructure using the Puppet configuration language. Once these configurations are deployed, Puppet automatically installs the necessary packages and starts the related services, and then regularly enforces the desired state. In automating the mundane, Puppet frees you to work on more challenging projects with higher business impact. Puppet Open Source is the underlying technology for Puppet Enterprise and runs on all major Linux distributions, major Unix platforms like Solaris, HP-UX, and AIX, and Microsoft Windows.

Why I’m not an open source person any more I’ve been having this conversation a bit lately so I just wanted to put it out there. From 1998-2007 I worked full time in open source software. I considered myself a member of the open source community. Open source was kind of my “thing”. This is no longer true. Cloud Computing: Multi-Tenancy Misconceptions One of the biggest benefits of the cloud, ‘Dynamic Scaling,' goes hand-in-hand with multi tenancy. If your application has a fixed group of users, you can easily predict the server load and still handle it with a typical data center. However, a large number of users, basically multi tenants, makes the cloud platform most efficient in terms of usability of the application and ‘Do More With Less Resources.' Some of the other characteristics of a typical multi-tenant application, benefited by Cloud are: Large global population working across time zonesQuite possible that at any time 100% usage is not possible, but rather 70-80% Application serves a global common process for most, but yet is customizable for local needs

Personal clouds let you take control of your own data - tech - 31 May 2013 A startup that lets you have your own cloud servers at home is part of a movement that is turning its back on conventional cloud computing IS THIS the death of the cloud as we know it? Space Monkey certainly seems to think so – it is planning to build a better one. About Vagrant - Vagrant Vagrant is a tool for building complete development environments. With an easy-to-use workflow and focus on automation, Vagrant lowers development environment setup time, increases development/production parity, and makes the "works on my machine" excuse a relic of the past. Vagrant was started in January 2010 by Mitchell Hashimoto.

Linus Torvalds and Others on Community Burnout Hang around the free and open source software community for any length of time, and you can't help seeing examples of burnout. A colleague takes on too much, and suddenly they're working harder for fewer results. They have a hard time concentrating on their work. They neglect their personal life.

Health & ICT Initiative A partnership with Cap Digital and Medicen Paris Region clusters Health has become one of the main concerns of developed societies. This is due to ageing populations, the emergence of new health risks at global level as well as the reform of healthcare systems. In addition, the desire to keep patients at home and to improve the quality of life and care, combined with changes in medical demographics, are key drivers for change. HP Takes Plunge on Dual Cloud Bursting HP has introduced advancements to its CloudSystem solutions with the means for cloud provider and enterprises to accomplish dual cloud bursting, one of the Holy Grails of hybrid computing. The CloudSystem targets service providers by giving them the ability to allow their enterprise customers to extend their private cloud-based applications bursting capabilities to third-party public clouds too. See more news on the HP AppSystems portfolio. HP CloudSystem, announced in January and expanded in the spring with a partner program, is designed to enable enterprises and service providers to build and manage services across private, public and hybrid cloud environments. As a result, clients have a simplified yet integrated architecture that is easier to manage and can be scaled on demand, said HP. [Disclosure: HP is a sponsor of BriefingsDirect podcasts.]
