Looks like Alex Freedland's recent prediction that OpenStack Will Eat IaaS AND PaaS Vendors could be coming true.  Just last week, Rackspace, one of the founders of OpenStack and a primary steward of many of its projects, announced Project Solum. 

Here are the areas that Solum plans to address:

1) Ease of application development and deployment via integrated support for Git, CI/CD, and IDEs

2) Ease of application lifecycle management across dev, test, and production types of environments -- supported by the Heat project’s automated orchestration (resource deployment, monitoring-based self-healing, auto-scaling, etc.)

3) Ease of application portability between public and private clouds -- with no vendor-driven requirements within the application stack or control system


Together with OpenStack's Project Havana and Heat, OpenStack Solum will be a direct competitor to other open source cloud PaaSes like Cloud Foundry and OpenShift. 

Learn how moving from a traditional, on-premises delivery model to a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy is a high-stakes, bet-the-company game for independent software vendors. Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.
