Can $50 Billion a Year Buy Open Cloud Computing?
— The piano wants to write the next few pages of the “Cloud Concerto.”
CIOs of 70 awfully big user establishments – complaining that they “can’t continue managing the cloud environment in the current way; we have to do something radically different” – have banded together as the Open Data Center Alliance to define the long-term requirements of the next-generation data center and the cloud infrastructure.
They mean to speak with a unified voice and impact the industry if for no other reason than they collectively represent a $50 billion-a-year IT spend. And they are looking for new recruits.
The companies say they want open solutions based on industry standards that can be sourced from multiple vendors and interoperate across data centers. They’re concerned about increasing complexity, the speed of change, cost and vendor lock-in.
