Baby, It's Cloudy Outside
By Christine Cignoli
It's the holiday season, and one IT wish list item may be cloud control and
confidence. There's a whole new crop of companies offering cloud management
and governance services to ease the adoption and maintenance of cloud. There
are a lot of challenges to getting the best value out of cloud, like
security, multi-cloud management and end-to-end visibility.
This time of year is ideal for eating a lot and finding out where your gifts
are hidden around the house. Soon enough, though, it'll be resolution time
when the new year arrives and you take stock of your big-picture goals for
2017. We hear a lot about "digital transformation" and modernizing IT, which
can seem like awfully lofty goals. What's the actual day-to-day plan? What
are the actions IT teams, managers and CIOs can take to make sure they're
improving upon their... (more)
Cloud companies cast a nasty pall over Wall Street Wednesday when they all
seemed to drop simultaneously.
Reuters said the retreat started when Equinix, the big hosting company, said
it had to cut prices to keep long-term customers after it acquired Switch &
Data earlier this year and lowered its revenue guidance.
Shares in Citrix, Saavis, Rackspace, NetSuite, VMware, Terremark, Red Hat,
Akamai, Salesforce.com, F5, Islion, Teradata, CommVault, Tibco and Radwqare
were all badly bruised by the flight.
Some of these names were bid up in the 3Par M&A frenzy although high
valuations hurt their chances of making a match.
When call centers first came about in the 1960s, they were built over PBX
systems. Private Branch Exchanges (PBX) are essentially a small-scale version
of the telephone exchange and are typically handled by one of the few
telephone network providers in the country. Fast forward to today, a call
center software provider does not need to own even the VoIP line that is
necessary to handle communication. The software can simply connect to third
party VoIP services with the help of an API and get started on their service.
The cloud has brought down the cost of operating a business and while this is
a good thing for the consumers, it also means a rise in the number of
competitors one has to deal with. Service providers in saturated industries
have tried to carve a niche by launching what are now known as industry
cloud applications. In short, these are niche cloud applicat... (more)

Cloud based infrastructure deployment is becoming more and more appealing to
customers, from Fortune 500 companies to SMEs due to its pay-as-you-go model.
Enterprise storage vendors are able to reach out to these customers by
integrating in cloud based deployments; this needs adaptability and
interoperability of the products confirming to cloud standards such as
OpenStack, CloudStack, or Azure. As compared to off the shelf commodity
storage, enterprise storages by its reliability, high-availability, efficient
and greener solutions can offer much reduced operational expenses (OPEX) to
the cloud service providers. Further considering the reduced OPEX, voluminous
deployment in cloud environment, lesser form factors (i.e. reduced real
estate investment) and intrinsic design solutions, capital expenses (CAPEX)
becomes much equitable and compelli... (more)
TrackVia, the Denver cloud-based database outfit, has added a cloud database
application development platform that's supposed to make the cloud accessible
to non-technical business users by letting them build their own
business-critical database-driven applications instead of waiting around
interminably for IT or some software developer to conjure something up that
probably won't suit anyway.
It claims IT won't mind - and might even become corporate champions - because
the scalable widgetry is secure, with reliable support and enterprise-class
controls. Heck, it means less work for them and no upfront costs.
It's supposed to put a very simple user interface on top of a feature-rich
relational database that can be securely accessed and shared over the web.
The four-year-old company, backed by Access Venture Partners, Flywheel
Ventures and folks like Rackspace founder... (more)

Most of the information about cloud computing today comes from vendors. As a
result, it skews toward purchasing software and hardware, and away from
making balanced decisions in the enterprise.
The enterprise architect must counterbalance vendor spin and place cloud
computing into the proper context: among the many deployment options
available, with its own unique advantages and disadvantages.
In his session at the 8th International Cloud Expo, Jason Bloomberg, Managing
Partner and Senior Analyst at Enterprise Architecture advisory firm ZapThink
LLC, will outline the primary issues an EA must consider in order to make
appropriate decisions about various cloud-based options, how to put together
a cloud roadmap, and how best to communicate the position the cloud should
take in the greater context of agile enterprise architect... (more)
"New infrastructure and operations technologies such as cloud services and
virtualization ... were selected by CIOs the most often and are the top-two
technologies for 2011," said Mark McDonald, group vice president and head of
research for Gartner Executive Programs, as the results were announced of the
2011 CIO Agenda survey by Gartner Executive Programs (EXP).
"CIOs and IT have been boxed in between modest budget growth and growing
legacy requirements," McDonald continued, noting that "Cloud services and
virtualization are well-suited for this budget reality, as they offer similar
service levels at lower budget costs."
The worldwide CIO survey was conducted by Gartner EXP from September to
December 2010 and represents CIO budget plans reported at that time.
According to the results, CIOs expect to adopt new cloud services much faster
than originally expected. Cur... (more)
