Getting stuck on OpenStack: Overcoming the open source cloud platform's upgrade barriers

Computer Weekly

Some members of the OpenStack community are finding it a struggle to upgrade to newer versions of the open source cloud operating system. Could customisation be to blame

The cloud will absorb Windows (and the rest)

David Linthicum

InfoWorld's Eric Knorr has made the compelling point that perhaps Microsoft should get out of the Windows business and instead focus on the public cloud. In the 1990s, I reviewed client operating systems that included Windows 95, Windows NT, OS/2, and about a dozen versions of Unix. The past focus on client operating systems, then on mobile operating systems, was perhaps a misplaced effort.

Cloud portability: Why you’ll never really get there

David Linthicum

Portability means that you can move an application from one host environment to another, including cloud to cloud such as from Amazon Web Services to Microsoft Azure. Containers are one technology meant to make such porting easier, by encapsulating the application and operating systems into a bundle that can be run on a platform that supports that container standard like Docker or Kubernetes.

How will the cloud change IT? Look at Microsoft

David Linthicum

Microsoft is planning a global sales reorganization to better focus on selling cloud software, according to Microsoft insiders. Well, cloud in, software out—at least from the Microsoft business standpoint. However, count on Microsoft soaking you for more operating system and office automation money for years to come. This comes as no surprise, considering that Microsoft did the same for its ailing phone business last year. What does this mean?

Enterprise IoT threatens to undermine cloud and IT security

David Linthicum

Yet most of the Global 2000 companies are unaware of the risks that they are bringing to IT and cloud security with their IoT adoption. Well, for example, as thermostats and sensor fail in buildings’ HVAC systems, they are often replaced with smart devices, which can process information at the device. These new IoT sensor devices often are computers unto themselves; many have their own operating systems and maintain internal data storage.
