Behind every cloud service or cloud-based solution, there are real people...
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers has emerged around cloud computing.
But who are the CEOs & CTOs behind those providers, who are the internal and
external entrepreneurs driving companies involved in the Cloud, who are the
leading engineers, developers, analysts, researchers, marketing
professionals, authors...who, in short, are the people behind the cloud?
This list will be updated weekly between now and November 4-7, 2013, when
13th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo Silicon Valley opens its doors in the Santa
Clara Convention Center, in the heart of California's Silicon Valley. Here
are some highly prominent "Cloud People" to kick off with...

A robust ecosystem of solutions providers is emerging around cloud computing.
Here, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal expands its list of most active
players in the fast-emerging Cloud Ecosystem, from the 'mere' 100 we
identified back in January of this year, to half as many again - testimony,
if any further were needed, to the fierce and continuing growth of the
"Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing.
Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various
services and solutions in this round-up are in e... (more)
The authors of the widely used OpenNebula toolkit have founded a company to
provide value-added enterprise-solutions around this leading open source
technology for cloud computing.
C12G Labs has been created to address the growing demand for commercial
support and services around OpenNebula.
"Our experience is that one single cloud solution does not fit all the
requirements and constraints from any data center. We provide our partners
with technology and services to build their custom cloud solution, product or
service", said Ignacio M. Llorente, co-lead of the OpenNebula open-s... (more)

C12G has just contributed to the OpenNebula Ecosystem its OpenNebula Express
installer under GPL open-source license.This installer eases the installation
and deployment of OpenNebula clouds. In few minutes you will get a fully
operational cloud from a cluster with a a clean install of the operating
system. This is the fastest track to cloud computing, enabling any
organization to have an enterprise-grade cloud in four steps.
OpenNebula is the most advanced solution for Cloud Computing. It can be
adapted into any existing datacenter to build a private, public or hybrid
cloud. Du... (more)
The StratusLab project has just released the first version of its cloud
computing distribution, which aims to provide a full cloud solution for grid
and cluster computing.
Funded through the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the
two-year StratusLab project aims to integrate ‘cloud computing'
technologies into ‘grid' infrastructures. Grids link computers and data
that are scattered across the globe to work together for common goals, whilst
cloud computing makes software platforms or virtual servers available as a
service over the Internet, usually on a commercial ... (more)
