OW2 Open Source Cloudware Initiative

Why the OW2 Open Source Cloudware Initiative

Mid-March 2010, the Technology Council and the Board of Directors agreed that Cloud Computing represents a strategic opportunity for OW2. We started an internal discussion, code named JetStream, see the presentation here, and we decided to launch a new Initiative dedicated to combining our open souce software cloud-oriented community assets. The OW2 Initiative will help define the future of open source cloud computing.

The Cloudware Initiative is a joint effort set up to:

  • foster open and interoperable cloud computing architecture
  • develop open source solutions for autonomic resource elasticity management
  • strengthen connections between integrators, vendors, users and the research communities
  • attract more attention from the research activities to foster innovative Cloudware solutions and practices.


The Cloudware Initiative offers a number of benefits to the participants:

  • a market opportunity
  • the chance to drive the growth of their OS Cloud solutions in a common direction achieving a great worth
  • the involvement in research activities driving innovation
  • a facilitation in driving OS Cloud solutions in the emerging countries' markets.
