Eucalyptus: The Next Billion Dollar Open Source Firm?
A new article this morning from ReadWriteWeb has identified Santa Barbara-based cloud computing software firm Eucalyptus has one of the open source software companies most likely to become the next, $1 billion company (in annual revenues). According to the report, Eucalyptus is benefiting from its focus on the Amazon Web Services ecosystem, plus having former MySQL head Marten Mickos as its CEO. The article did not say what kind of revenues Eucalyptus actually is delivering, however.
