The four freedoms (computing products) 0 freedom to run for any purpose 1 freedom to study how it works 2 freedom to make copies to help you and your friends (and charge for the act of making one) 3 freedom to distribute modified copies
The four freedoms (computing services) 0 freedom to run for any purpose Do you run a service? 1 freedom to study how it works Do you need to study how the platform runs or just study its interfaces/APIs? 2 freedom to make copies to help you and your friends (and charge for the act of making one) You dont need to really to: if you need more capacity you buy more of the service 3 freedom to distribute modified copies Maybe, but does it make sense?
Defining Open Cloud Respect the users of the services Users must be free to come in and out of clouds Data formats must be Open Standards Interfaces/APIs must be Open Standards Enable Open Innovation (dont reinvent the wheel) Create vibrant communities and business friendly ecosystems
Whats an Open Standard subject to full public assessment and use without constraints in a manner equally available to all parties; without any components or extensions that have dependencies on formats or protocols that do not meet the definition of an Open Standard themselves; free from legal or technical clauses that limit its utilisation by any party or in any business model; managed and further developed independently of any single vendor in a process open to the equal participation of competitors and third parties; available in multiple complete implementations by competing vendors, or as a complete implementation equally available to all parties.
