Creating the open cloud

This article was last updated 4 years ago.


Amid all the hype surrounding the cloud, there has been a growing need for open and proven components that enable any business to benefit from elastic computing. With public cloud services now widely available and OpenStack established as the de facto infrastructure platform, these components are now ready to deploy.

This white paper explains how OpenStack and other open cloud tools can be accessed via Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS — and the technical reasons why we think this represents the best route to the cloud.
