Cloud community announcements abound at Cloud Expo 2010
This week's Cloud Expo in New York City promises myriad announcements. Interestingly, many seem to focus on educating users on cloud computing.
One is CloudSleuth, Compuware's new collaborative cloud computing Web portal, which is designed to spark discussion and offer information on cloud availability and performance from existing cloud computing users.
And open source cloud software developer Abiquo will present the Thunderflash Exchange, its cloud software directory that provides virtual machine images from vendors and the open source community. These images can be deployed in one simple operation, which could save IT professionals serious time previously spent in building and configuring application servers from the ground up. The directory already includes some 1,000 images.
