by Sam Dean - Jun. 30, 2011Comments (1)

Over the past several years, cloud computing has become such a point of focus throughout the technology world that companies as large as Microsoft and Amazon are shifting their entire business strategies around it. The open source community is making large contributions to the shift toward the cloud, not just at companies like Red Hat, but all over the technology scene. At OStatic, we've been steadily collecting posts and resources related to open source and cloud computing, including conducting many interviews with providers of cloud tools and services. In this post, you'll find the most recent interviews, resouce collections and educational posts that we've done on the topic.

Recently, OStatic has been conducting an interview series with cloud computing platform managers, and makers of commercial cloud platforms, focused on the question, "What's in Your Stack?" The people we interviewed are, in many cases, cloud pioneers, and include founders of hot cloud-focused startup companies. The interviews in this series are found here, including a new one done this week:

Cloud is starting to appear everywhere now a days. I'm very excited for it, because as a person who takes advantage of using technology I like not having to keep up with places to store things. Even though getting extra memory is easy, it is a pain to have figure out where to keep everything
