OpenStack's latest release keeps the DIY private cloud features coming

The latest milestone release of OpenStack, the open source cloud platform project that's become a centerpiece of both Red Hat's and Canonical's cloud-building efforts, is out. But as advanced as this release is over its predecessors, a few key integrations for OpenStack remain as future to-do items -- and there's tension between the pace of OpenStack releases and the curve of its overall adoption.

Microsoft: Let us be your one stop for big data analytics

If there was any question that Microsoft wants to be everyone's data analytics shop, the company erased those doubts with its Monday presentation.

Ubuntu chases after Red Hat with OpenStack and Docker bundles

Even if Canonical hasn't remade the consumer desktop with Ubuntu or made much of a dent with Ubuntu as a phone or tablet OS -- at least, not compared to the way Google has with both Android and Chrome -- there's no denying the presence of Ubuntu as a server.
