OS for the Cloud
It's been a while since we last updated this page, trust us we have been extremely busy working with entrepreneurs in US, Europe and of course South East Asia. As you know we are following the work of Pivotal that is set to change the way companies develop and deploy applications. One of the company gem, Cloud Foundry recently received backing from IBM and is already set to bring US$300 of revenue this year.
Pivotal CEO Paul Maritz predicts now that a multi cloud world will kill vendor lock-in which has been so far one of the major hurdles for companies to adopt Cloud technologies. He is also talking about an OS for the Cloud and this is an idea we are supporting. Several industry players are also talking about creating specialised OS like OS for Robotics, OS for Home Automation or security specific OS.
This is definitely an idea we are supporting and we encourage the companies we are working with to work with those great open source technologies and more importantly to participate to the projects. South-East Asian startups are rising and they need to show their presence among the developer communities. They can contribute great technologies and foster the adoption of open source in the region.
In case you are wondering yes we are helping companies both in the Cloud computing space and Open Source space
