Tuesday data center tidbits.


Best cloud computing quote of the day, Tim O’Reilly on cloud computing:

“One of the things we really need to watch out for is that we don’t hold (cloud deployment) back because we have some storyline about how ‘that’s too dangerous.’ I’m getting old enough to remember when that’s what they said about giving people PCs”

Couldn’t have said it better myself (yes, I’m getting that old too!).

Next up is the story about Curtin University in Australia shutting down their computer facilities during a severe storm. Everyone wants to keep their computers running 24×7 but sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. We just went through that in the face of hurricane force winds, flooding rain, and major power failure (after migrating critical cloud computing services to our backup data center out of the storm’s path 🙂 ).
