As cloud computing marches forward, so does the effort to deliver free, open-source solutions that allow organizations to customize their own cost-effective cloud deployments. Some of them, such as Eucalyptus, even duplicate the functions of Amazon’s EC2, eliminating any tough learning curves. OStatic has put together a list of five options that combine the pay-as-you-go IT infrastructure advantages of cloud computing with the free, open source model.

  1. Open source cloud infrastructure tools have some interesting implications:

    1. Force the industry to embrace standards. Since open source has a lot of traction and builds a healthy ecosystem, it has been powerful in promosting standrds.
    Since Amazon, google and Microsoft are really not going there , it is a good sign.

    2.From my experience a lot of hared part in building clouds is the scale.
    Not sure how open source tools would get to test and tune their offering in an amazon like scale.
    Maybe environments and universities will drive it forward.

  2. Amazon just released their FREE console (https://console.aws.amazon.com/), I wonder if that will become a threat to any open-source infrastructure tools.
