{style:type=span|font-size=8px}OW2 Newsletter - May 2010 - From the OW2 Management Office{style}

{style:type=div|align=left}Dear OW2 Members, Dear All,

{style}{style:type=div|align=left}Our high point this month is the launch of the *OW2 Open Source Cloudware Initiative*. {style}
 {style:type=div|align=left}On May 5, we announce the OW2 Open Source Cloudware Initiative lead by strategic members Bull, France Telecom and INRIA. We believe this is a unique community effort that will help define the future of open source cloud computing. Indeed, there will be no open cloud without open source middleware for the cloud.{style}
 {style:type=div|align=left}Check the OW2 Open Source Cloudware Initiative page [here>>blank]. As we explain in the [press release>>blank], the Initiative is based upon a
bedrock of OW2 projects providing open source solutions for on-demand, scale-out capabilities with overall capacity optimization - the foundations of cloud computing and complex information systems.{style}
 {style:type=div|align=left}{style:type=div|align=left}The [2010 Programming Contest>>blank] is open: contestants should register now [here>>blank] and sponsors are still invited to check our [sponsoring packages>>blank].
