What Is The Open Cloud?
Openness in software and architectures is a big win for users. This truth is so widely recognized that a lot of vendors seem to favor using “open” as a sort of mantra even though they’re often not, well, open except in glancing and incidental ways. This is nowhere truer than with cloud computing.

 Cloud computing news summary

This week, Data integration and management practices are the growing trends in the new business market. These businesses seek better ways to grow their enterprise. This is also a response to the irreversible challenges and demand for variety, storage, scalability and complexity in information handling As a result of these trends, more companies are migrating to the cloud strengthening their backroom in data integration and data management and laying a secure and reliable information structure.

The Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) has released its better practice guides for cloud computing, which warns agencies about financial, legal and security issues for cloud. AGIMO also highlighted privacy and security concerns when storing data in the cloud, and made particular note that agencies should decide whether or not to store personal information in the cloud on a case-by-case basis. It also stressed that all agencies and vendors ought to comply with the Information Privacy Principles.

Cloud computing does not necessarily have to be privacy invasive, but moving data into the cloud means that the data will move outside of the direct control of the agency and may, in some instances, be processed and stored outside of Australia. Different levels of indirect control of this data are possible depending on the type of cloud service selected and the legal protections put in place by the agency.

Openness in software and architectures is a big win for users. This truth is so widely recognized that a lot of vendors seem to favor using “open” as a sort of mantra even though they’re often not, well, open except in glancing and incidental ways. This is nowhere truer than with cloud computing. An open cloud requires a wide range of attributes to push the needle from wholly closed to truly open Amazon Simple Workflow coordinates the flow of tasks and infrastructure, allowing users to concentrate on the results and impact on their business. The SWF product is based on Amazon’s own experience of working in the cloud and their potential inherent complexity, which can be countered due to the massive amount of repetition and iterative steps.

Microsoft is working to turn SkyDrive into a true cloud storage service with a new Windows 8 SkyDrive app and integration. Microsoft is moving toward combining its Skydrive and Live Mesh services with the next release of Skydrive. As weekend leaks indicated, Microsoft is building a SkyDrive Metro-style app for Windows 8. SkyDrive files also will be integrated with the Windows Explorer on the desktop  (as LiveSide noted in a post over the weekend), and the ability to fetch remote files via SkyDrive.com is coming, as well, according to today’s Building Windows 8 post from Mike Torres and Omar Shahine, Group Program Managers for SkyDrive.

Microsoft has begun sharing information about the beta of Visual Studio 11, the next release of its tool suite for windows 8, which will be released on Feb 29. Microsoft is adding new features to the next versions (Wave 15) of its SharePoint Server and SharePoint Online offerings.
