    • FCA 2010-05 1 Free Cloud Alliance (FCA) TioLive SLAP NEO NiftyName BS2 XS2 TioLive SLAP NEO NiftyName © The TIO Libre Initiative 2010 – All rights reserved BS2 XS2 The Free Cloud Alliance (FCA) is a non profit organization which members are software publishers in the field of open source cloud computing. FCA activities include dissemination of Open Source Cloud Computing knowledge, Open Source Cloud Computing Research. FCA members believe in Software Freedom and in Information Freedom.
    • FCA 2010-05 2 Mission Critical Cloud Solutions Nexedi Slapgrid preview Coordination & Billing Distributed Cloud Engine Linbit DRBD production Storage Network Block Storage Mandriva XS2 release Storage Distributed POSIX Storage Nexedi NS2 release Storage Transactionnal Storage IELO NiftyName + BS2 production Storage & IaaS Virtual Data Center TioLive TioLive production PaaS & SaaS ERP/CRM/KM/e-Business production SaaS Demotera AtikTeam SLAP TioLive Project Management NiftyName NEO © The TIO Libre Initiative 2010 – All rights reserved BS2 XS2 FCA Members are Demotera, IEOLO, Linbit, Mandriva, Nexedi and TioLive. FCA members operate in Austria, Brazil, France, Japan, Sénégal and Austria. Most solutions of FCA members are production ready and designed based on customer requirements. For example, AtikTeam software by Demotera is a SaaS service which provides online project management. It is used by 300 companies including universities such as ParisTech or government agencies such as DREAL PACA. Sadly, AtikTeam is not yet available in English. Demotera hopes that the Free Cloud Alliance will help AtikTeam to become international. So, if someone wants to start a SaaS business arround project management, write to info@freecloudalliance.org. This is the power of Open Source Cloud: everyone is Free to reuse our solutions and compete with our members. TioLive ERP/CRM has more than 8,000 companies registered. IELO hosts the largest provider of adult video in Europe. And, Linbit, a new member of FCA, recently got its technology accepted in Linux kernel. Congratulation! Some solutions of FCA have been released recently and start to be used in production. This is the case of NEO storage server by Nexedi and XtreemFS created by Zuse Institute Berlin and which is commercialy supported by Mandriva.
    • FCA 2010-05 3 Guidelines for the Cloud ● Open Source Solutions Catalog ● IaaS / PaaS / SaaS ● Storage / Coordination ● Cloud Revertability Assessment ● Software Freedom ● Data Freedom ● Competi tion Freedom ● Cloud Supplier Assessment www.freecloudalliance.org TioLive SLAP NEO NiftyName © The TIO Libre Initiative 2010 – All rights reserved BS2 XS2 FCA has a web site: www.freecloudalliance.org This web site provides information about open source cloud computing solution thanks to an online catalog. You can find there solutions of FCA members but also solutions from other providers and alliances. For example, Java technologies provided by OW2 consortium are listed in the catalog. Fee free to contribute to it. FCA provides guidelines to assess Cloud Computing solutions and Cloud Computing vendors. Our guideline on Cloud revertability can be used to assess whether a Cloud Computing provider gives you access to all the information which a company needs to “escape” from a Cloud Computing provider, and thus to reduce risks of lock-in. It is based on the “TIO Libre” (tio.ffii.org) definition created in 2008 by a group of experts of FFII. In short, if you subscribe to a service, can you get back your data including access logs (Data Freedom), get back the source code which you need to run the same application (Software Freefom) and ask a different provider to host it (Competition Freedom). FFII was for example the leader of the successful campaign in Europe to prevent software patents from stiffling innovation. FFII won at the European Parliament against the largest proprietary companies. So, if FFII approves “TIO Libre” guidelines, it really means that those guidelines protect you against anti- competitive lock-ins.
    • FCA 2010-05 4 Latest News ● Largest Customer Support Application  in Ireland ● Beteireflow ● 300 concurrent users ● Linbit joins FCA ● Demotera joins FCA www.freecloudalliance.org/news TioLive SLAP NEO NiftyName © The TIO Libre Initiative 2010 – All rights reserved BS2 XS2 FCA web site also has some news. So, please subscribe to it through RSS for example. Among recent news, TioLive, an FCA member, just succeeded the implementation of the largest customer support application in Ireland for the M50 highway. With 300 concurrent users and millions of documents or transactions, it is the proof tha open source Cloud can be used in the Enterprise for mission critical applications in the field of ERP or CRM. Other news: Linbit has joined FCA. This is a great news. It also shows the diversity of FCA in terms of solutions: python based, ruby based, java based and.... plain C based. FCA has no religion on languages and technologies as long as they work. Other news: Demotera with Atikteam. It is really a great SaaS for project management. Many users of proprietary project mengement SaaS should have a look at it. I even found recently that the sofyware which Atikteam is based on, Redmine, is being used by Airbus.
    • FCA 2010-05 5 FCA Storage Solutions XS2 POSIX Storage global BS2 Block Storage high performance NS2 Object Storage transactional TioLive SLAP NEO NiftyName © The TIO Libre Initiative 2010 – All rights reserved BS2 XS2 Let us go into some detail about FCA solutions. Storage is one of the most important point in Cloud. There is a theorem in computer science, the CAP theorem, which says that you can not get everything at once in a storage solution: availability, consistency and partitioning. This is why FCA has diverse solutions, since to universal solution can exist. XtreemFS is a good solution to spread files all over the world with a unique POSIX interface. It supports network disconnection. It supports Linux and Windows. Mandriva, supports commercial implementations of XtreemFS. Linbit DRBD is a great way to build a high performance redundant storage server. IEOLO uses DRBD as one of the storage backend component in NiftyName, so that storages are replicated on the same site and on different sites. Consider DRBD as the equivalent of a software SAN at the core of Linux kernel. Nexedi's NEO is a transactional distributed storage system. Compared to XtreemFS, it provides transactions and consistency but can not (yet) be used very efficiently over wide area networks.
    • FCA 2010-05 6 FCA PaaS General Purpose 3 days customization SLAP NiftyName TioLive NEO © The TIO Libre Initiative 2010 – All rights reserved All Through The Web XS2 BS2 TioLive, a general purpose PaaS part of FCA solutions, can be used to create SaaS services very quickly. TioLive includes all the standard design patterns and business workflows of an ERP or a CRM. It also includes a skinning engine and a gadget engine. Creating a custom application can be achieved entirely through the Web by configuring dialogs, workflows and adding scripts. In the above example, the standard TioLive was customized by a group of bachelor students in 3 days to cerate a CRM application which was inspired by a famous CRM SaaS. So, if bachelor students can create in 3 days such an application “All Through The Web”, it means that TioLive can be also used to provide to all divisions and subsidiaries of large company a consistent, a Web based environment, which they can user for ERP, for CRM, for business applications and which they quickly customize to their local needs.
    • FCA 2010-05 7 Demo 1: NiftyName http://www.niftyname.org/doc/zigui-video-tutorial/ TioLive SLAP NEO NiftyName © The TIO Libre Initiative 2010 – All rights reserved BS2 XS2 Let us now have a look at our first demo. We will show you how to create a virtual machine, a virtual storage and a virtual network. What is great with NiftyName is its performance, and its simplicity. Source code of NiftyName is only a few thousand lines. But you'll see, it does so much. And the performance is definitely the best on the market with true redundancy of storage, network and virtual machines, as well as with support of hybrid clouds consisting of a combination of hardware servers and virtual machines.
    • FCA 2010-05 8 Demo 2: SLAPGRID http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xd7fy8_tiolive-grid-demo_tech SLAP TioLive NEO NiftyName © The TIO Libre Initiative 2010 – All rights reserved BS2 XS2 Let us have a look at our second demo. This could be the future of the Cloud: decentralized. You'll see in this video that we could all become in the very close future cloud computing providers by connecting a server at home. Distributed Cloud Computing combines economies of scale typical of Cloud environments and cancels the Law of diminishing returns. In short, it is as cheap to manage, but much cheaper for electricity, cooling, location, network. And it can resist much better to incidents because it is really distributed in thousands of houses or micro-datacenters.
