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...

Cloud Expo Early Bird Savings
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)
Ubuntu Workshop at Cloud Expo
April 23, 2009 - Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) has been released today
bringing highly interesting new features, specially in the Cloud Computing
and Virtualization area. The new Ubuntu server distribution includes two
complementary cloud tools, OpenNebula and Eucalyptus, so providing the
technology required to build the three types of Cloud architectures, namely
private, hybrid and public clouds.
Eucalyptus can be used to transform an existing infrastructure into an
IaaS public cloud, being compatible with Amazon’s EC2 interface.
Eucalyptus is fu... (more)
After the release of OpenNebula 3.0 (IRIS), C12G Labs is pleased to
announce that a development version of the OpenNebula Addons has been
contributed to the OpenNebula Project. The major objective with this release
is to provide compatiblity between the Addons and the new OpenNebula 3.0. The
contributed components are:
LDAP Authentication Module that permits users to have the same credentials as
in LDAP, so effectively centralizing authentication. Now tested against
OpenNebula 3.0. Accounting Toolset that visualizes and reports resource usage
data, and allows their integration w... (more)
In my post "Interfaces for Private and Public Cloud Computing", I briefly
described the main differences between public and private cloud computing
from the perspective of their different application scope and interfaces. My
position was that a private cloud interface should provide rich enough
semantics, far beyond of that provided by public clouds (such as Amazon EC2
APIs), to ease the integration of the distributed virtual infrastructure in
the data-center management stack, including user and administration support.
Such interface should provide additional functionality for vi... (more)
This is the first post I am writing to illustrate the main novelties of the
new version of the OpenNebula Virtual Infrastructure Manager. OpenNebula is
an open-source toolkit for building Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud
infrastructures based on Xen, KVM and VMware virtualization
platforms.OpenNebula v1.4 is available in beta release,
incorporating bleeding edge technologies and innovations in many areas of
virtual infrastructure management and Cloud Computing.
While previous versions concentrated on functionality for Private and Hybrid
Cloud computing, this new version incorpor... (more)
