Open Cloud - who is in and who is not

by Volker Weber

Let me see. Who is big in cloud computing? Amazon, Google, Microsoft (harrummph), Salesforce. Don't see any of them here. Wait for us, we are the leaders? I mean, those on the manifesto.

Comments

Why would anyone subscribe to that manifesto? It's non binding prose, it's open to interpretation, and it's mostly asking for stuff that seems to be standard anyway. There's a very obvious agenda, and it has to do with the invisible quality of being "open", the perceived momentum and mass in having many supporters, and identifying those (coincidentally the leaders in that space) who can't be "open" because they haven't subscribed to the manifesto (you've mentioned them). I would much rather look at the objective qualities and actual portability/interoperability, rather than a "manifesto".

Jan, are you the Microsoft Jan Tietze?

Mariano, are you the IBM Mariano Kamp? ;-)

Yes, as you know, I am, but that's exactly the reason I never comment on clouds, layoffs or any IBM/Lotus products on this blog. And even though I am not an insider to any of those topics, I would feel the need to disclose who my employer is when discussing those things.

Anyway, that was a honest question. I detected a faint smell when reading the comment and was wondering if the author was one of the named companies? And a quick search at Google prompted me to ask for verification.

I detected a faint smell in your question as well.

Hehe. The best thing i´ve heard last week was Tahar Schaa, HP Business Consultant @ a-i3.org: Cloud Computing is not a technology, but a strategy of IT-Management. Anyone writing manifestos about it is waisting time.

I am, and it's no secret. If you google well, you may actually find out that I may not fit the stereotype so well. And I work in security, not cloud computing. Or marketing.
