I got this email last week, from a customer commenting on a prior blog post I wrote about the high cost of AWS, saying: Great post!

Dennis L., Singapore CoolAsia This prompted me to realize that an opposite and counter-intuitive trend is going on in the face of the hyped news of Amazon’s enterprise cloud growth.

I hear so many people talk about the "open cloud" as if it was some sort of panacea.

The IT Manager Dilemmas: I remember when I was an IT Manager in the late 90’s. Back then I was responsible for of the massive IT infrastructure for a pre-paid phone card processor. It was an environment full of “big iron”. I had a giant storage array bigger than my car, bunches of dedicated servers, multiple HP-UX servers running Oracle databases, a Stratus Continuous Availability Server that you could literally swap a processor on without shutting it down, and a giant SS7 telephony switch.
