Cloud Computing is one of transformational technology shifts which recently gains momentum. As the economy suffers in the past years, business started looking at ways to reduce costs and boost the productivity. There are so much buzz about Cloud Computing, I’ll try to explain in much simpler term as possible, but it hopes still gives you helpful information. The presentation below derives mostly from my experience developing a few applications on the cloud platforms. It gives me some interesting perspectives from developer point of view. We're also running day to day business completely on cloud platforms. I would love to share what works, what doesn't.
As I mentioned early in my first blog, this blog is not all about “What”, but I will focus on “How”. Given there is so much confusion about cloud; I’ll divide the presentation into two. The first part (today), explains the cloud platforms and the second part (next post), we’ll explain how to take advantage of this transformational technology change.
My advice is, although cloud is still early in the game, but it’s worth looking at it given its potential benefits. You can proceed with cautions; deploy it at the small departmental level. If you’re a small business, you can even try to jump now. As always, I’m looking forward to your comments, feedback, or send email to me directly.
