As 2015 draws to a close, it’s time to look back at the extremely busy year for cloud computing. It’s safe to say that cloud computing has become the de facto infrastructure for the IT industry, as we are well into the massive cloud adoption trend. It was also a year of cloud competition as Google, Microsoft, and IBM all tried to cut into AWS’s dominance. 2015 also saw some of AWS’s fiercest competitors, such as HP and Rackspace, capitulate and cede the field to… Read More

After analyzing the numbers, I’m more certain than ever that it is Codero’s duty to have a viable alternative to Amazon’s cloud. Most people know about Amazon’s Prime services and its massive, recognizable ecommerce business. But when you look at Amazon’s latest earnings announcement, the… Read More

One of the most notable events in the cloud world last week was that Rackspace tied the knot with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a reseller of Amazon’s giant cloud services. Rackspace is by no means the first hosting provider to offer AWS services to its customers; it was preceded by other companies such as LogicWorks, DataPipe, and others. Personally, I love Amazon’s innovations in online retail, and even in the cloud world. The things Amazon has put together with its magic retail formula of… Read More

(This article was first published at Network World. Click here to view that post.) When more than 20 services on the Amazon Web Services platform failed on Sunday, many of the internet’s biggest sites and apps, including Netflix, Tinder, and IMDb, suffered outages over a 6-8 hour period. The culprit behind these outages was AWS's NoSQL database DynamoDB, which was overwhelmed by metadata queries leading to substantial downtime affecting multiple AWS services (including AWS Elastic Compute Cloud [EC2] and AWS WorkSpaces).

Moore’s Law states that “over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit has doubled approximately every two years.” While this sentiment mainly applies to the processing power of computers, the same type of pattern can be seen in the world of data growth and storage. The amount of data being generated today is enormous! By 2020, it’s expected to reach 40,000 exabytes (EB), which is more than 5.2 TB of data per person on the planet! That’s a… Read More
