Submission + - Open the Clouds with Portable Stacks (gigaom.com)

rjamestaylor writes: "Rackspace Chief Strategy Officer, Lew Moorman, calls for creating open and portable stacks for Cloud development in a piece at Gigom.com: Currently, moving from one cloud to another is easy, and having multiple clouds to choose from gives customers the ability to utilize a range of features and service models to meet their varying needs. But proprietary next-generation databases, by locking customer code to specific clouds, remove the benefits of market choice, such as customized service experiences, competitive pricing and — most importantly — increased adoption.

To ensure continued advancement of the cloud, the industry needs to turns its support to an open cloud by using database technologies such as Cassandra and Drizzle Drizzle, which are portable to any public or private cloud."
