A robust ecosystem of solutions providers is emerging around cloud computing.
Here, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal expands its list of most active
players in the fast-emerging Cloud Ecosystem, from the 'mere' 100 we
identified back in January of this year, to half as many again - testimony,
if any further were needed, to the fierce and continuing growth of the
"Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing.
Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various
services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web
sites cited. As ever we encourage software engineers, developers, IT
operations managers, and new/growing companies in every case to "suck it and

Cloud computing is slowly gaining credibility and traction in the enterprise
world. As giants such as Google and Amazon productize their massive cloud
infrastructures, moving enterprise applications to the public cloud seems a
more realistic possibility. The advantages of an enterprise application
leveraging the public cloud sound like utopia - lowered total cost of
ownership and overhead costs, ease of maintenance, inherent high availability
and scalability that is built into the infrastructure. Yet when the theory of
moving to the cloud is put into practice, the biggest hurdle that stalls the
success of the transition is governance. This article analyzes its importance
and the various aspects of governance in the realm of cloud computing.

strategy because of justified co... (more)

Half the apps on the Internet are written in PHP. That gives Zend
Technologies, the PHP house, a stake in the cloud.
So it’s rounded up cloud merchants Microsoft, IBM, Rackspace, GoGrid and
Nirvanix and has gotten them to support its new open source drive to create a
so-called Simple API for Cloud Application Services that developers can write
to – or, Zend thinks as likely, rewrite to – to get native cloud apps.
These apps in turn promise to break the lock on closed clouds like
Amazon’s, making it possible to move applications and their data in and out
of clouds, migrating them around virtually all the major nebulae.
The trick will be in creating Simple Cloud API adapters.
Zend cloud strategist Wil Sinclair – that’s right, Wil – says both
Amazon and Google were asked to join the initiative.
Google’s widgetry is based on Python so it’s got an excuse for not
joining. ... (more)

Following my single server installation of RDO OpenStack using PackStack,
here is my install of OpenStack across three nodes.
What's key here is the answer files used with packstack. For a single node
its trivial since you just accept nearly all the defaults.
A distributed install requires a bit of planning.
First I installed on two nodes, using packstack from one node (sudo packstack
The answer file for this installation is here, it specifies the location of
each component: cinder on one server (.110) with this line:
# The IP address of the server on which to install Cinder
and keystone, swift, nagios, nova, horizon and quantum on a second server
Initial install looked like this:
Now, to add a second compute (NOVA) node to the installation, I ran packstack

In a recent presentation to Managed Service Providers (MSPs), I stressed that
embracing standards had to be on their list of strategic priorities. Cloud
solution success is based on a successful assembly of services from multiple
providers for which standards play a key role. Included on that list should
be OpenStack, the hottest open source project in cloud computing that has
drawn the investment and attention of leading IT vendors like AT&T, Dell,
IBM, HP and Red Hat. So, should you care about OpenStack?
Cloud-based disruptions in the IT industry began when Amazon started offering
computing resources via its Amazon Web Service (AWS) around 2005. Citrix’s
Cloud Platform (based on Apache CloudStack) had an early start in
infrastructure standards but does not have a growth that OpenStack is
enjoying. For virtualization, VMware is the gold standard for customers who
