Cloud Computing Show #9

Cloud Computing #9 Guest: David Patterson, Professor in Computer Science at UC Berkeley. Director of RAD Lab


Host: Gary Orenstein, The Cloud Computing Show
Co-Host: Edgard Capdevielle, Cloud Strategy Group

TechCrunch Cloud Event. Great Roster. (Marc Benioff, CEO,; Vic Gundotra, VP Engineering, Google; Amitabh Srivastava, Corporate VP, Windows Azure; Lew Tucker, CTO, Cloud Computing, Sun Microsystems; Scott Dietzen, SVP Communications Products, Yahoo; Paul Buchheit, Co-founder, FriendFeed; creator of Gmail; Werner Vogels, CTO Amazon; Mike Schroepfer, VP of Engineering, Facebook; Gina Bianchini, CEO, Ning; John Engates, CTO, Rackspace)

A few cheap shots between panelists, but nothing brand new. Standouts: Marc Benioff still says the fight is between the old model of buying software and the cloud models. Eric Schonfeld says you can stop beating up on Siebel, but Benioff says he loses more deals to that than bickering between other cloud offerings.

Discussion: Are the relevant battles really between the old computing/software models and new models, or between different cloud providers?

VMWare Announces Cloud OS
Discussion: Is the OS the control point any more?

Cisco's Foray Into Servers - Project "California"
Network World:
Discussion: where to add value in the commoditized server market?

Juniper's Stratus Project
"Juniper's Stratus Project comprises six elements: a datacenter manager, storage, compute, layer 4-7 switching, appliances, and networking"
Discussion: Did they leave anything out?

Ubuntu's Cloud Computing Release - Coming October
Support for Amazon EC2; Embedding EucalyptusPC World:
Discussion: appears like EC2 support is becoming a standard server/ desktop/ notebook/ netbook feature. HP's media server now supporting S3. Which way does traffic flow with Eucalyptus...into or out of the cloud?
