Originally posted on the WHIR.  Perspective is always important when picking technologies to base the future of your company’s IT on. Technologies go through generations of improvements along multiple dimensions before they reach true ubiquity. Take the disk drive as an example.

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.

One of the biggest stories of the past few weeks is the recent breach of affair-oriented dating site Ashley Madison. Hackers released the personal information of more than 37 million users, which has led to embarrassment, blackmail, and government investigations. Regardless of the moral position of a company like this, this kind of breach is an unprecedented disaster for any organization hosting sensitive information. Its entire business was built on the notion of secrecy; in the eyes of the public, it has failed miserably in… Read More
