By Sourabh / January 13, 2014 Category: Cloud Computing Cloud Computing Trends for 2014 by Leading IT Companies: IDC, NetApp, Forrester, Rackspace & Red Hat IDC “Value will start to migrate “up the stack”, from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to platform as a service (PaaS) and from generic PaaS to data-optimized PaaS. The latter will be most evident as Amazon Web Services rolls out an avalanche of platform-as-a-service offerings for developers and higher value services for businesses. This will force incumbent IT suppliers – the companies that won market leadership in the 2nd Platform era (pre-mobile, big data, cloud) – to urgently reconfigure themselves to fight for position in the 3rd Platform (mobile, big data, cloud) marketplace. Joining them in the fight will be Google, which will realize it is at risk of being boxed out of a market where it should be vying for leadership.” – Frank Gens, senior vice president and chief … [Read more...] about Cloud Computing Trends for 2014 by Leading IT Companies: IDC, NetApp, Forrester, Rackspace & Red Hat

By Sourabh / February 11, 2014 Category: Cloud Computing, Technology Cloud computing is not a new concept. We have been using Cloud Computing for ages, in one form or other. In simple words, you can presume Cloud to be a very large server on which different services and data are stored and you access all those for your work. The software and data that you access for your work doesn’t exist on your computer instead it’s on the server. This concept of using services not stored on your system is called Cloud Computing. What is Cloud Computing? Free Download PDF E-Book Cloud Computing is not an object in itself, rather it comprises services and database that are accessed via web or any private network. Key Cloud Computing providers: IBM, HP, Google, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Salesforce.com, NetSuite, VMware etc. Examples of Cloud Computing services includes Google Docs, Office 365, DropBox, SkyDrive etc. Types of Cloud Computing Cloud Computing is composed of … [Read more...] about What is Cloud Computing, Basic of Cloud Computing (PDF): Free Download
The cloud has been a boon for many companies, enabling CIOs to turn off servers or even shutter data centers. CIOs rent processing power, storage and other tools from a mix of vendors in a quickly growing market. But a small contingent of IT leaders is looking to a more efficient way to rent computing horsepower. Rather than take on the often onerous obligations of designing and managing cloud architecture, they are going “serverless.”With serverless computing, cloud instances are no longer allocated, only to sit idle until called upon to fuel applications and other functions. Rather, resources are provisioned only when a specific event occurs. A textbook example of event-based computing is the internet of things (IoT), with sensor-based devices reacting to triggers on the fly. And when a user accesses a mobile app from his or her smartphone — an event — virtual machines in the cloud retrieve and serve up the information.New York Times CTO Nick Rockwell is … [Read more...] about Serverless: The future of cloud computing?
At VMWorld this week the virtualization giant is announcing a new integrated system for building private clouds made up of the company’s virtualized compute, network and storage products packaged together with new management software. VMware calls its new VMware Cloud Foundation product a hyperconverged infrastructure offering. It’s also meant to be the basis for VMware’s software defined data center (SDDC). Cloud Foundation will be available to run on customers’ premises or in the public cloud, making it the basis for a hybrid cloud too. Cloud Foundation is a packaging of the company’s traditional compute virtualization software vSphere with its NSX network virtualization product and its VSAN software-defined storage area network product. Cloud Foundation also includes a new software management product named SDDC Manager which controls the virtualized compute, network and storage resources. Combined, VMware envisions this system as the basis for … [Read more...] about VMware ‘Cloud Foundation’ integrates virtual compute, network and storage systems
French cloud computing startup Blade today announced its Shadow PC service is available in California, marking the company’s entry to the US market. With it, you can run Windows 10 on a Mac or play competitive shooters online using your smartphone and a game pad. The Shadow PC service gives users unlimited access to a high-end computer on the cloud. It’s a complete Windows 10 experience allowing subscribers to install any software they own, including Photoshop or Slack. Most importantly, however, it’s tuned to provide an optimal gaming experience. Other gaming services, such as Sony’s Playstation Now or Nvidia’s GeForce Now, provide a limited gaming experience, while most generic cloud computing solutions don’t even come close to providing a gaming-spec computer. Shadow PC gives users access to a comptuer equivalent to a $2000 desktop, this is from the press release: Perfect graphics: A dedicated high end NVIDIA graphics solution for a perfect image … [Read more...] about This cloud computing service runs Windows on Mac and Overwatch on smartphones
