very informative and useful also.
keep going on.

Several different organizations mails systems could inhabit the same email server while being secure oblivious to one another.The only little fly in the ointment? You know it, come on, it’s on the tip of your tongue!Ma’ Bell. Wide Area Networking. If you can get the speed you need, then it’s gonna cost you the salary of an IT executive every year. If you can get it at all.Until gigabit plus WAN is affordable this cloud, or more specifically co-located virtual datacenters, will just be so much mist in the stratosphere. Is that a dragon I see? Now, it’s a gigantic mouse! No.. wait.. it’s a…

I don’t care what he says, cloud computing won’t work. And outsourcing is not the answer. Someone above mentioned fad… ugh, yes.

Both Google and Yahoo have caved in to Chinese government demands for information leading to arrest of journalists. The Democrat-controlled federal government, desperate for money, will also snoop in the Cloud for evidence of tax evasion.

Utilities generated it, grid delivered it and companies utilized it. Computing is a bi-directional flow. Unique intellectual property and operational business information is generated and then put back in the cloud. There is NO similarity to electricity. When did a piece of capital equipment generate its output and send it back to the power provider for storage?The technical community is short of true innovations and hyping this as a breakthrough.

The US now has 8400+ banks plus branches, plus thousands of non-bank banks. It is how a third of our GDP is financial sector.

Cloud computing is here and will only become bigger and more robust. “you can’t stop progress.” Now we have to figure out how to make the public cloud more virtual private cloud friendly.

Once a TC paradigm is completely insinuated into the computing ecosystem, users will be able to source out the most efficient solution to their computing need. Without TC, users will continue to be held hostage to a very few service providers and their limited computing models. TC is rapidly developing and is dependant upon acceptance of the TPM chips contained in over 300 million enterprise pc’s. Just as banks today provide credit to individuals they trust, the service providers of the cloud will one day provide computing services to all users they trust.
