Why We're Fighting for an Open Cloud (Linux.com)

Over at Linux.com, Amanda McPherson, the Linux Foundation's VP of Marketing and Developer Programs, makes the case for the open cloud. "But during any technology shift, users can either gain or lose power, and cloud computing represents both an opportunity and a threat. An opportunity to have more computing power, more cheaply and efficiently. But a threat to give up the freedom won by the open source software revolution. In fact, cloud computing platforms can deliver much more vendor lock in than the old client/server vendor-led worlds ever did." As part of the post, she also announced the schedule for the CloudOpen conference which will be held in conjunction with LinuxCon North America in San Diego, August 29-31.
