The ARM-Powered Cloud Comes To OpenStack

Apple uses the ARM architecture for its chip sets on its iPhones and tablets. Now we are seeing the first uses for ARM-powered architectures on servers to power cloud environments. Contributors to OpenStack have developed the first ARM powered OpenStack cloud as a zone in TryStack.org, the free sandbox for exploring and testing OpenStack. The ramifications are evident in a few ways: It shows the depth of the OpenStack ecosystem in its ability to attract engineers from the ARM ecosystem to make the project happen.  Contributors included engineers from Calxeda, Cisco, Core NAP, Dell, Equinix, HP, NTT and Rackspace Hosting. It demonstrates OpenStack’s drive to grow its community and diversify the architectures it can run on. For instance, TryStack cloud was developed to test software on the architectures supported by OpenStack.  According to OpenStack, users now have the choice to launch...

The Big Data and Cloud Computing Trends Depend on Open Source

Reuven Cohen has an interesting post up on Forbes' site, which asks, "Free Versus Open: Does Open Source Software Matter in the Cloud Era?" He writes: "I like open source as much as the next guy but, from a value proposition standpoint, just being 'open source' doesn’t sound all that compelling to me.  This has become especially true in the emerging cloud computing landscape where APIs and Big Data have become some of the most valuable currencies." In fact, though, as the transition to the cloud and Big Data continue, open source software is playing an absolutely critical role. Cohen notes that Big Data has become one of the "most valuable currencies," but isn't the open source Hadoop platform--used to sift insights from extremely large data sets--one of the flagship pieces of software driving the Big Data trend? Hadoop has given rise to promising startup companies such as Hortonworks, focused on training and services surrounding it. ...
