AT&T, Oracle Bet On Open Source Clouds

Seeking Alpha - Which has more value in the cloud, open source code or an open API?

Rackspace (RAX) is betting on open source code with its CloudStack project. Amazon (AMZN) has long bet on open Application Program Interfaces (APIs) with its Amazon Web Services. Analyst Matt Asay says it's the API that matters.

Oracle (ORCL) and AT&T (T) now say it's the source code that matters.

Oracle this week placed a big bet on open source by naming Cloudera its supplier of big data software for its Oracle Cloud Appliance.
