Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Cloud Zone (Feb. 7 to Feb. 13). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Openstack in a Box - Setting Up Devstack Havana On Your Local Network

The Openstack project is hugely popular, and it is also pretty damn complicated to set up. Fortunately, the good folks as Openstack have set up an ‘all-in-one’ configuration allowing you to install all of the Openstack components on one machine using a fairly straightforward script.

2. What’s So Great About AWS S3 Archiving?

As roll your own logging solutions go, archiving to S3 is by far the most popular. This is, in fact, usually the first step an organization takes to implement a log management solution. Why do they do this you ask? Some good reasons to follow.

3. Choosing a Cloud Integration Solution

Selecting an integration technology to replace point-to-point integration, whether it be a tool or a complete platform, plays a critical role in the success of your business. Businesses should carefully consider a solution to solve SaaS and SOA IT projects, making sure all integration needs are met.

4. PaaS: Breaking Ties, Increasing Focus

Before PaaS, applications had, by today’s standards, unnecessarily strict infrastructure requirements. There’s no doubt in my mind that the most significant benefit you get from a PaaS is to break those ties, allowing everyone in their respective role to focus on their already difficult-enough tasks at-hand.

5. The Hardest Task SaaS Faces is Getting Users to Invest in Your Product

This week I caught up with Stu Green- founder & CEO of an interesting initiative “Project bubble”. We spoke on topics that are particularly interesting and relevant to SaaS Addicts. Keep reading to hear his best of breed tips and practices.
