From the ‘Private/Public Cloud Hybrid‘ files:
Red Hat today officially launched an ambitious new effort called Deltacloud to help abstract away the differences between public and private cloud deployments.
Oh and it’s all open source too.
“Today each infrastructure-as-a-service cloud presents a unique API
that developers and ISVs need to write to in order to consume the cloud
service,” Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens blogged. “The Deltacloud effort is creating a common, REST-based API,
such that developers can write once and manage anywhere.”
This is what open source is all about in my opinion, namely breaking lock-in and opening things up.
How many enterprises out there were afraid of cloud deployments because it meant locking into one vendor’s roadmap?
