The tech industry is notorious for marketing fluff.  From the beginning, cynics dismissed the term "cloud" as marketing hype. Even within the walls of a company where I once worked that now sells themselves as cloud innovators, the term "cloud" was laughed at.

Tech startups and their investors have flocked to AWS with inflated expectations on the notion that cloud economics were better than hosting applications themselves. After all, start-up resources are tight, agility is required, and any time not wasted on infrastructure management can be put toward business and product differentiation. It all makes sense, but start-ups and investors alike… Read More

There has been plenty of discussion around both the Protect-IP Act (PIPA) and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) legislation.

The legislation was so loose and non-specific that it would have paralyzed the flow of information on the information superhighway and hurt our customers, as well as customers of other hosting companies. CODERO is a leader in the fight: Codero… Read More
