Open Source Cloud Roundup: Top Stories of the Week

Not to over-inflate the horse race nature of the cloud computing space right now, but this is an exciting time to watch the action as open source projects seek to compete with giants such as Amazon and the telcos. This week's Open Cloud Roundup of top stories illustrates just how much the industry is heating up this year, with The Linux Foundation's announcement of a new CloudOpen conference and OpenStack's recent accumulation of big-name partners. The week also turned up an interesting "how-to" and a product launch for building your own private cloud with Debian.

Miss our Collaboration or Legal Summits? Here are some resources

Last week, we had our biggest turn-out ever for our Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit and our Legal Summit held immediately before. Collab has come a long way since the first meeting in 2007 at the Googleplex.
