Cisco's Cloud Plan For Internet Of Things

Cisco's $1 billion cloud investment is not about competing with Amazon, Google, or Rackspace to supply general-purpose IaaS. Cisco and its partners will offer a global chain of datacenters to serve as a backbone for the Internet of Things.

Re: The real issue of IoT
With the IoT, we've got the cart is before the horse.  To mix metaphors, that means while every vendor is looking for ways to try to change the tires on the car as it barrels down the highway at 120 mph, CISCO wants to try to change the road underneath the cars.  The crashes are just waiting to happen.

Hooked on the Internet of Things?
Asksqn, I hate to tell you but the long slide started when you allowed that landline receiver to be put on the kitchen wall. Didn't you know someone was listening in? Whatever you do, don't register your motor vehicle at the DMV. Too many gov't agents hanging out there. Maybe the real problem is the TV covertly emitting CIA-sponsored electromagnetic waves. Their attempt to brainwash is having a debilitating effect.

Go Away, Orwell
The Internet of Things AKA 24x7x365 monitoring of personal data with very little to zero control afforded to the user regarding the distribution of it.  Once every item in the household has an IP address and is happily sharing info with corporate (and by proxy, government as well) then the fun will really start.

The real issue of IoT
Cisco is definitely going in the right direction, and I like the idea that they are picking multiple provider partners around the world, but there is a big missing piece of the puzzle that I hope they do address: what about security?  IoT and M2M brings a host of security concerns due to the infancy of the way these devices are not just connected, but utilized.  I'd be curious to see where the security partners start getting involved.

Next generation cloud?
In effect Cisco is staking out a spot in the next generation cloud, one that will collect device and sensor data by automated means and allow data owners to perform analytics on it or use it in other ways in an application-centric environment. Among other things, that means the network will recognize the needs of the application and ensure they're met.
