After years of development and fine tuning, the cloud vision of true computing elasticity is finally a reality. The question now is how organizations can best take advantage of the latest cloud technologies to optimize their IT, scale infrastructure and services in near-real time, and make the most of new market opportunities. In our webinar, Ubuntu's Founder Mark Shuttleworth and Redmonk's Stephen O'Grady share their ideas on the cloud and the benefits it offers businesses today. They discuss how open-source technologies in general, and Ubuntu Cloud in particular, can help companies avoid frustrating vendor lock-in and stay in control of their own cloud destinies. They also explore Ubuntu's unique attributes, looking at how it minimizes hardware and software costs, accelerates cloud deployment, and supports dynamic service provisioning and scaling.
