Google has killed open source claims Oracle

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Oracle has had huge sulk over losing its Java court battle to Google and is saying some surprisingly strange things in the tech press about it.

Probably the daftest is a comment by Annette Hurst is an attorney at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe who represented Oracle in the recent Oracle v. Google trial. In an op-ed she claimed that Oracle’s loss means that Open Source is dead in the water. For those who came in late, Google successfully argued that its use of Java APIs, about 11,500 lines of code in all, was protected by “fair use.”

Hurst said that rather than developers celebrating that they will not be sued by copyright trolls for using bits of code, they should be worried that the free software movement itself now faces substantial jeopardy. – See more at: http://www.techeye.net/news/google-has-killed-open-source-claims-oracle#sthash.kRX97jlN.dpuf

Chromebook + Android apps = Trouble for Windows PCs

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Chromebooks are already outselling Macs. So Linus Torvalds is wondering if this really might be the year of the Linux desktop. With the addition of Android apps to the Chromebook, maybe it really will be.

Linux’s founder, Linus Torvalds wonders if „we may have to „finally lay the ‚year of the Linux desktop‘ joke to rest.“ Why? Because, for the first time Chromebook outsold Macs. Based on how Chromebook sales keep going up, while Mac sales keep going down, Chromebooks will probably always outsell Macs from here on out. So, with Chromebooks as now the number two „desktop“ device, Windows PCs may have something to worry about too.

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

Open source developers have built a burgeoning ecosystem of data analytics and storage solutions to address the data deluge over the past several years. Here’s a look at several of the most popular open source tools for big data storage and analytics.

What the heck is HPE up to with its cloud?

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

HPE’s cloud story remains complicated. While the company has left the public cloud behind, it will continue to offer its OpenStack-based Helion 3.0 as a private cloud.

Most recently, HPE closed down its Helion public cloud. HPE CEO Meg Whitman had reason. The Helion public cloud simply wasn’t that good.

In addition, as Bill Hilf, SVP and GM of HP Cloud, said when he announced that the company would be sunsetting its Helion public cloud, „Customer tell us that they want the ability to bring together multiple cloud environments under a flexible and enterprise-grade hybrid cloud model. In order to deliver on this demand with best-of-breed public cloud offerings, we will move to a strategic, multiple partner-based model for public cloud capabilities, as a component of how we deliver these hybrid cloud solutions to enterprise customers.“

​OwnCloud founder resigns from his cloud company

By Lotte Nielsen | Allgemein , Blog

In a public letter, ownCloud CTO and founder Frank Karlitschek cites the less-than-ideal relationship between the company and user community. He plans to stay on as project lead.

Frank Karlitschek, ownCloud’s founder and CTO, has resigned from his company. OwnCloud is a popular do-it-yourself infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud. In a public letter, Karlitschek first explained that he „founded the ownCloud project a little over 6 years ago with the goal to enable home users, companies, universities and big enterprises to host their own cloud services and files. In a world with growing threats around security, surveillance and espionage, this idea is becoming more important every day.“
