Does the enterprise need open source cloud platform

This is a question that came up which made me wonder why does the enterprise really need an open source cloud platforms like Openstack, CloudStack, Eucalyptus, etc. What I tend to hear is that our IT needs to be more like AWS, Rackspace or Azure but what does that really mean?

I make these statements purely from my experience and by defining the “enterprise” as the internal organizations of a business.


TechEd Keynote for the Adult in Me, WWDC Keynote for the Kid in Me

After watching the keynote for WWDC today something came to mind. It was of a commercial but it took awhile for me to actually remember what it was about.

The management piece is just as important as the operating system for an enterprise.
