The Linux Foundation has issued its second annual "Guide to the Open Cloud: Open Cloud Projects Profiled," which provides a comprehensive look at the state of open cloud computing. The foundation created the guide in response to investor calls it received where people were trying to understand which projects mattered.
This year's report adds many new projects and technology categories that have gained importance in the past year. It covers well-known projects like Cloud Foundry, OpenStack, Docker and Xen Project, and up-and-comers such as Apache Mesos, CoreOS and Kubernetes. The purpose of the guide is to serve as a starting point for users considering which projects to use in building and deploying their own open clouds. Taking a deeper look into cloud infrastructure, the paper includes storage, provisioning and platform projects. New categories outline emerging cloud operating systems, Software-defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) technologies.
