Many in the content management industry (and beyond) seem to be slightly obsessed with the buzz thatthe “cloud” is. The opinions can be quite polar, but for now we’ll concentrate on those embracing virtualization.
In today’s interview, Emmanuel Garcin, VP and GM in North America for open source CMS provider Jahia (news,site), shared his thoughts aboutcloud trends and told us how Jahia is going about it with the newestrelease of Jahia Cloud.
Did you ever think Zipcars were a more flexible option than, say, Hertz? Jahia is transferring this principle to web content management (+/- one JVM).
The ECM Industry Didn’t Invent the Cloud
Jahia won’t be lonely in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) platform adventures. When asked about the competitive landscape, Garcin said that withNuxeo,Alfresco, etc., the issue is the same: the real innovation is in the hardware, but not the software. Therefore, there will likely be no competitive differentiators among anyECM or WCM vendor announcing their cloud deployments.
