Here’s a news flash: Big companies may or may not be wary of Amazon’s cloud, but they’re already using it. It’s a pretty safe bet that virtually every Fortune 1000 company is running workloads beyond test and development in Amazon’s cloud and that means trouble for incumbent IT providers like IBM, HP, Dell and others which are scrambling to respond.

Default choices are phenomenally powerful. (You can read any number of scientific papers and books about this.) Many businesses believe that they’ve got a low-risk project that they can toss on cloud IaaS and see what happens next. Or they’ve got an instant need and no time to review all the options, so they simply do something, because it’s better than not doing something […click headline to read more !]

The issues with cloud computing at this point include security, performance, costs, service and vendor viability.

Presentation made by David Langdon at Microsoft Tech Days
To Cloud or Not to Cloud…that is the question. Are you an IT Administrator, IT Service Provider, or ISV faced with making a strategic decision about cloud adoption? Are you overwhelmed by all the cloud jargon and implementation choices? In this session, we will examine public and private cloud computing solutions across the industry, in the context of the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) definition. We’ll look at the technical and business elements that factor into the private/public/hybrid cloud decision. We’ll discuss the strengths of the Microsoft platform, focusing on Windows Azure and virtualization with Hyper-V. This session will include a case study of a managed service provider that made the decision to offer a public cloud solution on Windows Azure. […click headline for more]

The cloud is poised for considerable growth, but customers worry about how their data is stored. Who might have access to it, and can it be read while it is in transit? Perceived issues with cloud computing at this point include security, performance, costs, service and vendor viability. Security will be a leading concern for the foreseeable future [… click Headline to read more!!!]

The cloud movement is just like the PC revolution, in that it is an economics-based move. In other words, the price performance of microprocessors relative to mainframes was so overwhelmingly compelling that it completely disrupted the enterprise business of IBM, Digital, Wang, Prime, and Data General. However, eventually, as enterprises adopted client/server and microprocessor technology (e.g. Oracle Unix) things stabilized, meaning the enterprise absorbed those technologies and ultimately thrived. The same is happening here… [click Headline to read more !!!]

Public Clouds are infrastructure services offered by companies like Amazon, Rackspace, GoGrid, etc. and platform services like Microsoft Azure, Google App Engine, etc.. These cloud providers take care of deploying, managing, securing the infrastructure and companies can consume it on demand with a pay as you consumption option, much like the utility consumption. Private Clouds are deployments made inside the company’s firewall (on-premise datacenters).

Larger companies and government departments are likely to consider going to the Cloud but in a more controlled and secure fashion via a Private Cloud. A Private Cloud has all the benefits of the Public Clouds but it is hosted inside the firewall of the company or department it is supporting. Full control of who has access to data is maintained while all the benefits of the Cloud are realized. […Click headline to read more]

Amazon Virtual Private Cloud will allow businesses to carve out isolated cloud resources for their own private network without ever having to connect them to the public Internet. Second–and perhaps more important–Amazon VPC works with software licenses in such a way that businesses can run their virtualized applications in the cloud as if they were installed in computers.
