In 2007, Google and IBM along with a number of universities embarked on a large-scale research project on cloud computing. In early 2008, Eucalyptus became the first open-source, AWS API-compatible platform for deploying private clouds. In early 2008, OpenNebula, enhanced in the RESERVOIR European Commission-funded project, became the first open-source software for deploying private and hybrid clouds. By mid-2008 the opportunity could be seen for cloud computing to shape the relationship among consumers of IT services, those who use IT services and those who sell them and noticed that organisations were switching from company-owned hardware and software assets to per-use service-based models.
