    About software for cloud computing


    Hi all,

    Private, Public and Hybrid Clouds

    I'm now testing OpenStack;
    Home OpenStack Open Source Cloud Computing Software
    -Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
    -Platform as a Service (PaaS)
    -Software as a Service (SaaS)

    It is an Open Source software.

    I'm interested to know whether there are other Open Source software with equivalent features?

    TIA

    B.R.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Bleeding edge stuff this. We (my company - a tier-one telecom corporation) are getting seriously involved with this stuff, and the frustration index is getting very high! Right now I am spending way too much time dealing with the vagueries of the Amazon VPC cloud...

    Hi,

    I also found oVirt. Now I'm testing it.

    Amazon VPC is NOT free. UbuntuOne, Dropbox etc. are free to use.

    AWS is not free, as you point out. However, for commercial production use, one does not expect free. In our case, we are using aws to handle situations where adding capacity to our data centers is either not possible, or will take time to build out, at a very high cost. So, in those cases, using a pay-for-use service like aws is very sensible, from the business value vs. cost perspective.
