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.

Office 2010 & Web Apps Due in June

Microsoft Developer Office Web Apps, Microsoft's answer to Google Apps, are supposed to be out sometime in June along with Office 2010. Microsoft, which confirmed the rumored timing, has yet to price the half-dozen versions of Office 2010. The browser-based Office Web Apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, will be free to consumers via Windows Live. Businesses with volume subscriptions to Office will also get free access to the dumbed-down weblets, which they will be able to host internally if they want to. That alternative is viewed as more secure than going to Google's servers to use Google Apps. Meanwhile, SQL Server 2008 R2 is due May 6. ... (more)

Les grands acteurs de l’informatique disent ... oui au Cloud Computing : quelques exemples concrets, en France.

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)

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. I recommend attending an RCR Local event in your area, if you have the opportunity. Wanting to sound somewhat intelligible, I had prepared in advance some answers to our panel’s seed questions, some of which I’m converting into a blog entry here for comment and feedback. Here are the operator business model transformation set of questions. I’ll post a 2nd blog with the network transformation oriented questions What are some of the biggest challenges facing carriers today as they look to deploy 3G and 4G networks? Operator Profitability – as achieved through the duality of Optimization and Monetization, those complementary forces at play in Mobile broadband networks. A part... (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...

The Answer Is “Cloud,” What’s the Question?

I attended two days of Cloud Expo, organized by SYS-CON at the Santa Clara convention center here. The expo runs for four days, with today November 4th. being the last day.  I was also one of many speakers at this conference. One feels the Cloud computing movement is in full gear after listening to many speakers and walking the exhibit halls. Many booths by known and new vendors – Oracle, SAP, Cisco, NaviSite,..the bias seemed more towards infrastructure providers. Folks who either run hosting services or supply gear to these services were in large numbers. Hence we saw Intel, Cisco, Rackspace, Savvis, Amazon, Microsoft, etc. There were very few SaaS vendors such as SalesForce.com or Netsuite.  The part of Oracle present was, as expected, the former Sun folks displaying the Exacloud server, recently announced at Oracle Open World. Several new vendors such as Abiquo,... (more)
