Cloud Expo Wrap-Up: Building Private Clouds, Private PaaS

By Angie Hirata, November 11, 2011

Fresh back from Cloud Expo West, it was a great event to further educate, evangelize, and promote private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Stackato. Being that Stackato (our private PaaS cloud platform) is new for us in 2011, it was the first Cloud Expo we've participated in. And participate we did! We were busy the entire week giving talks, sitting on panels, attending sessions, meeting with partners, and talking to lots of people at our booth. Phew!

By Daniil Kulchenko, October 27, 2011

EC2 is already a (para)virtualized environment, which means it’s nearly impossible to run your own virtualization (KVM/VirtualBox/qemu) from inside that environment. However, Linux recently introduced a new system into the kernel, called cgroups, which provides a way to isolate process groups from each other in the kernel.
