Cloud.com recently announced the open source CloudStack software, which, according to Network World, makes it easy for just about anyone to get into the cloud provider business. Now with Cloud.com and Eucalyptus the stage is set for a similar story in cloud providers.


The open source CloudStack software makes it easy for anyone to get into the cloud business.

"It is appropriate that it reminded me of those days too. Cloud.com could do for cloud providers what products like Ensim and Cpanel did for the web hosting business. Those products greatly lowered the barrier for web hosting providers. They made setting up, provisioning and management of web sites and servers easy. Anyone could set up provisioning and management for web hosting using one of these products and get into the web hosting business. This greatly changed the web hosting business. Site and server management were no longer key differentiators. Everyone had them now and they all looked alike. To date that has been exactly what was missing in the cloud equation. Now with Cloud.com and Eucalyptus the stage is set for a similar story in cloud providers."
