re: The Great Cloud API Debate
Boris Renski is right. OpenStack should have native APIs that it alone controls. But what the project is actually doing is patterning them on the only defacto standard out there, Amazon's APIs. Support for AWS APIs outside the core code then becomes a logical addition to the project. Isn't that what's happening?

re: The Great Cloud API Debate
Any effort that focuses on the services that end users care about and while reducing the operational complexity of implementing and running clouds is likely to be well worth it. I discussed this in a recent blog on the Cloud API debates and am interested to hear what other think. http://community.ca.com/blogs/...

re: The Great Cloud API Debate
I guess this largely hinges on whether you think Amazon is going to maintain its hegemony in the long term, right? If so, it's in OpenStack's best interests to make the APIs core. Who's willing to bet against AWS?

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
