Anatomy of an open source cloud

M. Tim Jones at developerWorks has written an articles on the building blocks for infrastructure as a service.
The use of the cloud as an abstraction is quite common for the distributed system that is the Internet, but the past few years have seen this abstraction expanded to incorporate highly virtualized and scalable infrastructures that are easily provisioned as a service (either locally or remotely). This article forgoes an in-depth definition of cloud architecture and its benefits.

The article begins with an exploration of the cloud architectures and then moves beyond the building blocks to the more highly integrated solutions.
