BusinessWeek Piece on Cloud Computing Misses The Point

Steve Hamm (@stevehamm31) of BusinessWeek - pictured below -got a big article on #cloudcomputing into last week’s issue.  It rightly points out that cloud computing is the big thing and will keep us busy for the next 10 years.  Unfortunately, a lot of the article is misleading or missing key context. His first example cited is Avon’s use of a smartphone- and PC-accessible system for connecting Avon’s 150,000 “sales leaders” with their reps (sales leaders are the consultants who recruit and run other consultants/reps and get a cut of the “upline” commission).  Nothing in the article explains how this is a “cloud computing” solution.  Remote/mobile accessible applications have been around almost as long as the Internet.  The article doesn’t say, but I suspect that the system serving up all this info is a traditionally developed and deployed one sitting inside the Avo...

Google vs. China, Our First Cyber War

Last week we witnessed the first Cyber War, but it didn’t go down quite as many of us expected. Instead of a group of anonymous hackers trying to take over thousands of infected PCs or trying to cut off access to critical infrastructure, we saw Google declare the first salvo in its war against Chinese censorship by moving its servers to Hong Kong. The more I thought about this, the more I realized that this was war, declared by a private company on a nation state. Just because Google doesn’t have its own army (yet), or that no actual physical weapons were fired doesn’t make it any less of a battle. And it is only going to get worse for all of us as other private firms realize that they need to take control over their servers and intellectual property. What is curious is how few companies signed up for the cyber equivalent of the coalition of the willing – GoDaddy w... (more)

RHEV 3.0 Sets Stage for VMware Challenge

Originally posted on eweek: http://www.eweek.com/c/a/Virtualization/RHEV-30-Sets-Stage-for-VMware-Challenge-885501/ by: Cameron Sturdevant Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Servers significantly updates management capabilities and supports giant virtual machines. The release of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 signals that 2012 will be the year that IT managers at organizations of all sizes have real choices to make when it comes to virtualizing workloads in the data center. RHEV 3.0 and the Microsoft Windows Server 8 release candidate both offer a challenge to the currently unrivaled data center virtualization lead position held by VMware vSphere 5. Until now, IT virtualization managers could use VMware vSphere without much question to run workloads of all types. RHEV 3.0 successfully challenged this operating assumption in tests at eWEEK Labs. The revamped ... (more)

Intel Announces Intel SOA Expressway for Healthcare

Intel Corporation announced Intel SOA Expressway for Healthcare, software that provides a way to exchange healthcare information inside hospitals and with health information networks. The product will allow healthcare providers to connect with one another so that each can provide better care while benefiting from reduced integration costs. Until now, the sharing of patient information among healthcare network participants has been hindered by the steep costs and complexities of proprietary data and integration services. Based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Intel SOA Expressway for Healthcare offers a solution to this problem by providing a way to translate, process and connect any data format across a healthcare network. In addition, Intel has created a group of validated independent software vendors (ISVs) that provides best-of-breed capabilities to deploy... (more)

Cloud Economics – Amazon, Microsoft, Google Compared

Any new technology adoption happens because of one of the three reasons: Capability: It allows us to do something which was not feasible earlier Convenience: It simplifies Cost: It significantly reduces cost of doing something What is our expectation from cloud computing? As I had stated earlier, it is all about cost saving … (1) through elastic capacity and (2) through economy of scale. So, for any CIO who is interested in moving to cloud, it is very important to understand what the cost elements are for different cloud solutions. I am going to look at 3 platforms: Amazon EC2, Google App Engine and Microsoft Azure. They are sufficiently different from each other and each of these companies is following a different cloud strategy – so we need to understand their pricing model. (A word of caution: this analysis is as per the published data on 20th January, 2010 and ... (more)

Intel Wades into Tablets

Needing to do something about ARM and its legion of followers, Intel introduced its x86 tablet chip Monday at its Developer Forum in Beijing. That's the 45nm Oak Trail Atom, now officially christened the Z670, which it said has captured 35 design-wins, apparently mobile clinical assistants, industrial tablets and portable point-of-sales devices. It's 60% smaller than other Atoms with a lower-power design for fan-less devices as well as something resembling "all-day" battery life. It will available in widgets starting next month. Oak Trail is the prelude to a now-sampling 32nm Cedar Trail Atom, which Intel showed off and which is supposed to show up in fan-less netbooks, entry-level desktops and of course tablets in the second half. Unfortunately for Intel netbooks aren't selling much since the iPad arrived on the scene. Neither, come to think of it, have Atom tablets... (more)
