Both of these initiatives are needed
Red Hat is playing catch up here. Uhuru Software provided the same capability to Cloud Foundry in December 2011 and Tier3's Jared Wray (now part of CenturyLink) provided it through Iron Foundry before that. Both of these efforts are needed. If the data center is going to move closer to a DevOps state, it will need to be able to run Linux and open source languages alongside .Net. Both Cloud Foundry and OpenShift will provide that capability, if both can be sustained.

There's no doubt Google has made headway into businesses: Just 28 percent discourage or ban use of its productivity ­products, and 69 percent cite Google Apps' good or excellent ­mobility. But progress could still stall: 59 percent of nonusers ­distrust the security of Google's cloud. Its data privacy is an open question, and 37 percent worry about integration.
