Fireside Chat: The Role of Open Source in the New Cloud Era

A session at CloudBeat 2011

Wednesday 30th November, 2011

4:35pm to 4:55pm (PST)

Despite the concerns of cloud computing purists, the private cloud remains compelling to enterprise IT managers. Those who wish to benefit from the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud, while safeguarding security and maintaining control over their own IT assets. Traditional enterprise IT companies are moving to meet this demand with their own all-encompassing commercial products, but companies such as Eucalyptus are among those betting that the real opportunity in this market is one based upon a common set of open source foundations. Eucalyptus Systems CEO Marten Mickos joins us to discuss the real value of “open” in the cloud and to share his insight around the enterprise cloud ecosystem and where open source will come to dominate.
