November 24, 2010 – Cloud computing associations seem to be appearing on a daily basis. The two most recent are the Open Data Center Alliance and the Asian Cloud Computing Association. One columnist looks at what they have in common and most importantly, what they don’t.

This interesting information was found on Sys-Con Media in their article, “Cloud Control: Customers versus Vendors.” It appears that Asian Cloud Computing’s organizational scheme is not all that different from that of the Open Data Center Alliance, but the tone of their mission statements differ considerably.

The writer makes some good comparisons and has some insights into what each might achieve. It is worth the read.
