Open Source Cloud Computing Service 10gen Gets $1.5 Million

,----[ Quote ]
| 10gen was founded by Kevin Ryan, previously the CEO of DoubleClick, and
| others from DoubleClick. DoubleClick has a massive part of the display
| advertising market online (and Google is trying to purchase it). Presumably,
| Ryan knows a thing or two about commercial efforts online. Despite the fact
| that 10gen's software stack is free and open source, hosting and customer
| service are fee-based.

Free and Open Source Software vs. Cloud Computing

,----[ Quote ]
| Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see the point of proprietary network
| services (or cloud computing, or Software as a Service, if you prefer). Not
| when you have Free software as an alternative (“Free,” in this case, being
| analogous to open source or GNU/Linux).

Hey You, Standarize My Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| Rather it will arrive because it’ll be the means of differentiation for late
| market entrants; those that want to play in the cloud with the likes of
| Amazon and Google, though at a fraction of the scale.
