Open source and cloud computing are two terms that everyone seems to be talking about. Powerhouses on their own, when paired together open source and cloud computing can create a developer’s dream scenario.
In this session, Bret Piatt, technical alliances at Rackspace Hosting will discuss the history of open source software development and the spread of open source across the internet. Cloud computing providers are now incorporating open source into their business models through open APIs and contributions to various open source projects such as Cassandra and Drizzle, and Bret will discuss these developments while taking a close look at the intersection of cloud computing and open source to cover:
How cloud computing is changing open source
How cloud computing can benefit from open source
How open source will lead the interoperability push
How the success of cloud is tied to mass adoption that requires interoperability
