There’s a myth going around about the Cloud, luring companies in with promises like “Everything will just work,” “It will be so much cheaper,” “It’s absolutely reliable” and so on. “The Cloud is right for everyone,” it says. However, for every company lured in by that siren song, you’ll hear just as many moving entirely to the Cloud and crashing against the rocks. This can be devastating, especially to smaller companies, or startups with limited time and means. Throughout all of my travels and discussions… Read More

There are a number of analogies trying to explain how the cloud works. Sure, none of them are perfect, but they do help us understand a band of technologies that are largely metaphors themselves. So to get a better understanding of cloud hosting's benefits and functionality, let’s sum up some of the most popular analogies, and see what we can learn starting with perhaps the oldest: the power grid analogy. The cloud is like a power grid Say you have a building far out in… Read More

We’re well into 2014 and it’s amazing to me that more organizations don’t have a clear cloud plan. Too many people are still confused or afraid of the “C” word.  But here’s the thing: There are real dangers in not having a cloud strategy, AKA a well-known cloud plan for your IT environment.  Every company should use cloud for something, but not necessarily everything!  The various general use cases for cloud computing are hopefully well-known by now.   End of the Hype Cycle The hype… Read More

Two major drivers for the adoption of cloud computing are its agility and ability to bring products in rapid time to market iterations. For the last decade, stretched-thin IT departments have increasingly found themselves in direct competition with "shadow IT" groups within their own company. Departments in the corporation were running their own IT infrastructure services in the cloud because they couldn’t wait nor rely on their own IT department.

Get Some Popcorn and watch the war of the giants.  We are betting on AWS and I’ll tell you why… Cloud Price Cut Madness! It’s official; a cloud price war has broken out! In a move to match pricing on Amazon Web Services, resulting from Google’s price cuts a day earlier, Microsoft has also slashed prices on several of its cloud computing services.

It is 25 years already!  Happy birthday to the World Wide Web!  Back in March of 1989, Sir Tim Berners-Lee proposed a system that made it possible to share computer information digitally using nodes and links, forming a "web" that eventually scaled worldwide, becoming what we now know as the internet. We love anniversaries, we mark seminal moments in history with this type of recognition, but often miss the big picture. Anniversaries are all around, the dawn of Google, the first Tweet ever, the dawn… Read More
