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. Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web sites cited. As ever we encourage software engineers, developers, IT operations managers, and new/growing companies in every case to "suck it and see" by downloading or otherwise sampling the offering in question for themselves.

Top 20 Cloud Services Providers That Are Gaining Mind Share

There is little doubt that cloud computing is big news, but who is gaining your mind share?  Amazon, NetSuite, and Salesforce.com, have been in the news recently with a number of announcements. So many that I’ve been attempting to track them by creating specific journals for each. Our experiences are likely to be different, and barring actual surveys and research, is subjective and based largely on our own impressions and perceptions of which companies are in the news or making news in this segment. There are several lists that are excellent points of reference – The Top 150 Players in Cloud Computing, 85 Cloud Computing Vendors Shaping the Emerging Cloud, and The VAR Guy’s SaaS 20 Index. Large technology companies like AT&T, EMC / VMware, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Unisys, and others that come to mind have not been included below in the top 20 that are gaining mind share... (more)

2010 - 2020 : la décennie Cloud Computing s’ouvre en fanfare ! Il n’y a plus un seul grand fournisseur qui ne proclame pas que le Cloud Computing est un élément clef de sa stratégie ; ce n’est pas moi qui vais m’en plaindre ! J’avais été sévère, il y a quelques semaines, avec les annonces Cloud de Microsoft et SAP. Ce sont les deux fournisseurs mondiaux qui ont le plus à perdre si les entreprises migrent massivement vers des solutions Cloud Computing ... ce qui va se produire dans la décennie qui démarre. Je vous propose de passer en revue quelques entreprises clefs du secteur informatique avec qui je collabore. Toutes ces entreprises vont, sérieusement, stratégiquement et rapidement vers des solutions Cloud Computing et SaaS. Ce sont tous des entreprises «historiques», nées bien avant le Cloud, oui, mais elles sont en train de prendre les «bonnes» décisions qui leur p... (more)

Understanding Cloud Taxonomies and Security

XML Security at Cloud Expo OWASP AppSec DC 2009 had a compelling session that defined cloud taxonomies and the security implications associated with the cloud computing. The three taxonomies that have become part of our vernacular are: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS): Set of virtualized components that can be assembled to build a application.  Amazon EC2, Rackspace, Opsource, and GoGrid are examples of IaaS where you can rent "virtual" hardware and software as a "pay-as-you-go" services.  If you need 5 Linux servers running MySQL Database for 3 months, you'd subscribe to an IaaS provider and using their REST or Web service-based API (or command line if you're too cool) to provision, de-provision and monitor your instance. Platform as a Service (PaaS): A runtime environment for application developer to deploy their applications in their desired programming environm... (more)

Why Should You Join an Ethernet Exchange?

Recently we talked about scaling up for Zettabyte Era growth. However, what’s important to remember is that traffic will often be carried over many networks to reach its destination - and somewhere, somehow there must be a way to interconnect them.  Ethernet is far and away the most popular way to do that not just for its flexibility but also because it is the most cost effective. As a Local Area Network technology, Ethernet (and let’s not forget to capitalize that “E”!) wasn’t originally designed for interconnecting carriers - a number of innovations were needed before it could be called “Carrier Ethernet.” For example, there was no easy way to troubleshoot connections, to scale the number of virtual local area networks, or VLANs, needed in a service provider environment, or even a set of industry standards that could be referenced to ensure that services across m...
