The low end hosting industry took a couple of black eyes this past week when stories circulated around the web over the accidental loss of customer information.

The abuse of the word "cloud": A brief history Does anybody host anymore or are we all just supposed to act like we only sell cloud now? If you follow the general trends in the hosting/cloud industry, you would have to believe that hosting is becoming extinct, as everyone is “cloud washing” (the purposeful, and perhaps deceptive attempt by a vendor to rebrand an old product or service by associating it with the buzzword “cloud”).

Finding the right place for your apps to live is like shopping for real estate, with choices between owning, renting, and hybrid models. Owning your own home is like owning your own data center. Alternatively, a hotel lets you use as many rooms as you need without much of a commitment, which is like parking your applications in the public cloud. And hybrid clouds are somewhere in the middle. Owning a Data Center and Owning a Home Running your own data center is similar to… Read More

Now that the industry is realizing the customization and control that enterprise needs, we have gotten a peek at the world that Nicholas Carr saw in 2003, when he said IT doesn’t matter, and then in 2008 when he predicted the big switch. IT has completely transformed and… Read More
