Don’t count Eucalyptus out just yet…

Today I happened to run across the Eucalyptus 3.0 roadmap and was happy to see so many features planned, that have been requested by us and others for awhile now.  A lot of the features previously reserved for the commercial (and closed source) Eucalyptus Enterprise Edition are now being opensourced…and this is great! High Availability…User/Group management…LDAP integration…and support for Windows Guest Images are just a few.  With this announcement added to the current momentum and buzz behind OpenStack (Cactus coming this week…Diablo planning in 2 weeks!!)….and now VMWare has rolled out Cloud Foundry!!!  Boy oh boy….it’s looking like we’re in for a very interesting summer. 🙂
