Tetrate | Enterprise Service Mesh with Envoy & Istio
Helps companies with digital transformation to public clouds (cloud-native) to finally manage microservices at scale. That includes mastering challenges around networking APIs, HTTPS handling and modeling service interactions (from outside the Istio mesh).

Tetrate's three pillars of added value are:

1. Intelligent Traffic Management
Enhance reliability with dynamic, QoS-aware, decentralized routing controls.

2. Continuous Security
Secure inter-service communications with built-in service identities and powerful AuthN/AuthZ policies.

3. From Edge to Workload
From ingress to service, run our infrastructure on any abstraction and any cloud.

As founders, maintainers and core contributors to "serverless" open-source software like Envoy, Istio and the broader CNCF ecosystem are they well recognized in the industry and got substantial founding by Dell, INTEL and Google.

Cenit IO | Open Platform for Data and Business Integration (iPaaS)
About:
"100% open integration Platform (iPaaS) that's modern, powerful, yet hackable to the core, ready to use in the cloud or on-premises. It is designed to solve unique integrations needs, orchestrate data flows that may involve types of protocols and data formats, and provide API management capabilities. All of which can support a wide range of integration use cases. Is particular valuable to embrace a pervasive integration approach.
[...]
The insatiable need for integration driven by social networks, open APIs, mobile apps, cloud services and, increasingly, the IoT is fertile ground for the growth in adoption of integration platforms.
[...]
Many are familiar with services such as Zapier and IFTTT, which addresses common integration problems but have limited capabilities to adapt to particular needs and to reflect business flows that are not simple. iPaaS platforms are designed to handle this issue, being in recent years in the state of the art for applications and data integration technologies used by large organizations, and gaining increasing interest in the general public.
[...]
None of the vendor leaders in the market really offers a completely open and transparent solution, with the freedom to use, customize or modified without restriction, we believe that is one of the keys to a wide adoption, and relevant to making the decision to use on-premise.
[...]

Backendless: After create a new Data Type using a JSON Schema is generated on the fly a complete REST API and a CRUD UI to manage the data. Useful for mobile backend and API services.

Routing and orchestration: Integration flow development, monitoring and lifecycle management tools. Enables multi-step integration flows by compose atomic functionality (such as connection, transformation, data event, schedule, webhook).

Data integration: Data validation, transformation, mapping, and data quality. Exchange support for multiple formats (JSON, XML, ASN), standards (EDIFACT, X12, UBL) and protocol connectors (HTTP(S), FTP, SFTP, SCP).

Third party service integrations: Directory for OpenAPI Spec (Swagger) and Shared Collections - social feature to share integration settings - to connect services as ERP / Fulfilment / Marketing / Communication."

Based on Ruby, with integrations for Odoo and ERPNext.

China’s latest censorship target: cloud storage
Excerpts:
"Vdisk, KuaiPan, and UC net disk – run by Sina, Xunlei, and Alibaba, respectively – have filled the gap left by the government’s censoring of international options, but now each one is partially or fully closing down.
[...]
Late last month, Chinese president Xi Jinping gave a lengthy speech on the country’s internet policy, where he said that the government must “improve the management of cyberspace” in order to give the internet a “healthy, positive culture that is a force for good.”

In article www.chinadaily.com.cn/business/tech/2016-05/07/content_25124946.htm also hints to other cloud storage & service providers that will have to close:
"Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's cloud service DBank said on Tuesday it would coordinate with the government's anti-piracy push by halting cloud storage services to individual users
[...]
Tencent Holdings Ltd said it would end a file-transferring service on its Weiyun cloud
[...]
Sina Corp and other internet companies such as Kingsoft Corp Ltd and 115.com also said they would stop offering free personal cloud storage services
[...]
It remains unclear whether Baidu Inc will take any measures with its Baidu Cloud service, which is China's largest personal cloud storage provider with more than 38 million monthly active users"

IBM: Cloud Computing and Open Standards - A Perspective for the U.S. Federal Government - December 2013
A manifesto by IBM to US government shortly before huge re-investments into IT were made, in which IBM pledges for open-source, open standards cloud computing, in contrast to competing offers from closed-source opponents. Key points are: - Prevent vendor lock-in; - Place the government, not vendors, in control; - Reduce investment risk and barriers to entry; - Enhance efficiency and service levels (software interoperability and data portability); - Cost-saving; HAG

LXC - Linux Containers
About: "Umbrella project behind LXC, LXD, LXCFS and CGManager. The goal is to offer a distro and vendor neutral environment for the development of Linux container technologies. Our main focus is system containers. That is, containers which offer an environment as close to possible as the one you'd get from a VM but without the overhead that comes with running a separate kernel and simulating all the hardware. This is achieved through a combination of kernel security features such as namespaces, mandatory access control and control groups."
