The Linux Foundation has released a new report titled "Guide to the Open Cloud: Open Cloud Projects Profiled." According to the organization, the guide is "a helpful primer for any organization beginning a migration to the cloud or moving toward web-scale IT." It added, "The purpose of this guide is to serve as a starting point for users considering which projects to use in building and deploying their own open clouds. Taking a deeper look into cloud infrastructure, the paper includes storage, provisioning and platform projects. New categories outline emerging cloud operating systems, Software-defined Networking (SDN), and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) technologies."
The foundation released its last cloud computing guide in October 2013, but the market landscape has changed significantly since then.
