Combine the supercharged Cloud Computing marketplace with the ubergeek cred
of the open source movement, and you’re bound to have some
Mentos-in-Diet-Coke moments. Such is the case with today’s Cloud Service
Orchestration (CSO) platforms. At this moment in time, the leading CSO
platform is OpenStack. Dozens of vendors and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs)
have piled on this effort, from Rackspace to HP to Dell, and most recently,
IBM has announced that they’re going all in as well. Fizzy to be sure, but
all Coke, no Mentos.
Then there are CloudStack, Eucalyptus, and a few other OpenStack competitors.
With all the momentum of OpenStack, it might seem that these open source
alternatives are little more than also-rans, doomed to drop further and

The problem with Big Data is that, well, Big Data are big. Really big.
We’re talking terabytes. Petabytes. Zettabytes.
Whatever’s-even-bigger-bytes. And of course, we want to solve all our Big
Data challenges in the Cloud. If only we could get those gigando-bytes into
the Cloud in the first place. And there’s the rub.
Uploading Big Data from our internal network to the Cloud via an Internet
connection is as practical as filling a swimming pool through a drinking
straw. It doesn’t matter how sophisticated our Big Data analytics, how
super-duper our Hadoopers. If we can’t efficien... (more)
Eventually, both ESBs and API management will be subsumed into Integration as

As any data specialist will tell you, there are always performance vs.
flexibility trade-offs in the world of data. Every generation of technology
suffers from this trade-off, and the Cloud is no different. What is different
about the Cloud is that we want virtualization-based elasticity—which
requires partition tolerance.
