Red Hat to Drive Open Source Cloud Computing Discussion with Second Online Forum
Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that it will present the second online Open Source Cloud Computing Forum on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, hosted by Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens.

The virtual Open Source Cloud Computing Forum was established by Red Hat to foster the discussion around open source technologies as the foundation for today's public and private cloud computing initiatives. Building on the success of the first Open Source Cloud Computing Forum, hosted by Red Hat in July 2009, the second online event will feature technically focused presentations from across the industry that will explore today's challenges to cloud adoption and how open source technologies can help break down these barriers and drive interoperable enterprise cloud deployments.

“Open Source technology provides the foundation for many of today's cloud computing deployments, and will be an important driver for the future of the cloud,” said Brian Stevens, CTO and vice president, Engineering at Red Hat. “Open source software by its nature provides a robust and interoperable foundation for today's clouds by enabling an open, democratic debate about specifications through the openness of its source code. With the high levels of customer interest around cloud computing and the importance of open source technology as part of this evolving computing paradigm, we see great value in bringing together our partners, community members and fellow technology leaders to discuss open source in the cloud.”
