First item today comes from the Twitter stream. There’s a lively discussion over the assertion that cloud computing is all about agility, not cost. This is completely ridiculous. Cloud computing reduces cost AND makes the resources more agile, it’s not an either or proposition. If the customer needs agility, our cloud computing service can do that. If they need lower cost, our cloud computing service can do that too. Cloud computing is all about VALUE!
Next up is reading about the cloud computing infrastructure paradigm. It’s not that the industry can’t come to grips with how to use the term “cloud”, it’s that everyone who engages in cloudwash by tacking the term onto everything in sight need to be slapped (at least he didn’t call it THE cloud).
