This week in the open source cloud headlines, SUSE makes a splash with its pro-open blog post on Forbes and a shout-out from OStatic for its own cloud contribution. Rackspace and HP both debuted OpenStack-based clouds this week. And Netflix released its Chaos Monkey cloud-testing application to the open source community.
An open source cloud offers choice, accountability and unity, argues SUSE's Pete Chadwick in this blog post.
Still flying under the radar in comparison to the headline-grabbing open source cloud platforms, SUSE offers its Linux Enterprise Server in pay-as-you-go implementations.
Rackspace made good on its promise to debut its cloud on the open source platform Aug. 1.
Also as promised, HP ended the public beta of its OpenStack-based Cloud Object Storage and Cloud Content Delivery Network this week.
The application, which creates instance failures for cloud testing, runs in Amazon Web Services but can be modified to work with other cloud providers or instances. Netflix has more details in its blog post announcing the release.
