The ‘Fund a Feature’ program aims to let corporate users accelerate the development of specific features while still feeding the result back to the open-source project’s community.

It was a busy week in cloud, bookended by Amazon and Google App Engine outages. In between those snafus, OpenNebula updated its cloud and stealthy startup Yottabyte launched technology that it says will let companies yoke commodity hardware into clouds of their own.
