Keynote: Amazon and the Future of the Open Cloud

Greg DeKoenigsberg


Amazon Web Services is the dominant public cloud provider in the industry.  And for good reason: they make it dead simple to get up and running in the cloud.  Lock-in risks in the public cloud world, though, are enormous: what alternatives will users have if, for whatever reason, they decide that Amazon services are no longer for them?  How do we leverage the freedom of choice provided by open source in a cloud world that is increasingly dominated by a single entity?
