How open source will fit in with SOA and Web services
Data centers are increasingly making or planning to make the move to environments characterized by Web services and service-oriented architectures (SOAs), data grids and the use of virtualization technology. But just how will open source technologies fit into this "architecture of the future?"
Tony Iams, vice president and senior analyst with Ideas International Ltd. in Port Chester, N.Y., discussed how open source fits in with these emerging technologies today and going forward. Iams led a session on the topic of virtualization at this week's LinuxWorld Conference & Exposition earlier this year.
