From Eucalyptus to Openstack, and OpenNebula to Nimbus, open-source is growing in importance at all layers of the cloud compute stack. Today’s CIOs see open-source as a viable alternative to proprietary software both in their own data center as well as in the public-cloud and hybrid cloud environments.
