Cloud Expo Early Bird Savings A robust ecosystem of solutions providers is emerging around cloud computing. Here, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal expands its list of most active players in the fast-emerging Cloud Ecosystem, from the 'mere' 100 we identified back in January of this year, to half as many again - testimony, if any further were needed, to the fierce and continuing growth of the "Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing.

Operating Profitable 3G and 4G Networks

I sat on a panel at the RCR Local Boston event earlier this month. I thought the panel and audience interaction were quite stimulating and informative. The informal networking was also fruitful.
