The consumerization of IT has led to the growth of cloud, a big shift for the major hardware players and new opportunities for startups to build a business using IT without huge up-front costs. Amazon’s CTO Werner Vogels explains what’s going on at Structure:Europe.Amazon has been on the tips of everyone’s tongue Tuesday at our Structure:Europe event in Amsterdam as the de facto standard that everyone has to measure up against. So when Werner Vogels, CTO and VP of Amazon, joined Om Malik onstage to explain how cloud changes business models and how Europe is adopting cloud the audience was ready to hear Vogel’s thoughts on anything and everything.
Open ... and Shut Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, the thought police are back. For years, the open source community was torn apart by fractious debates over what "open" meant and who was open enough. As we've moved beyond name calling to focus on getting work done, the same old debate has shifted to cloud computing, with a new crop of pundits and evangelists wrangling over who is the cloudiest of them all.For some, the answer may be "No." Flexiant founder, Tony Lucas, for example, took to the stage at Structure this week and denounced "cloud washing" and demanded that it be stopped. This follows Appirio calling out
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Please tell us, what is Eucalyptus Systems all about and what do you do?
Mickos: Eucalyptus is the world's most widely deployed private cloud software platform. Our software enables companies to turn their own hardware into so called private clouds. With Eucalyptus installed on your servers and your storage system, you have a cloud of your own with the benefits that you are used to from the public cloud such as Amazon Web Services.
Some examples: Puma runs all their consumer-facing websites on Eucalyptus. This allows them to move workloads around and provide compute
You've told your ITOps team to make it happen, you've approved the purchase of cloud-in-a-box solutions but your developers aren't using it. Why?Forrester analyst Lauren Nelson and myself get this question often in our inquiries with enterprise customers and we've found the answer and published a new report specifically on this topic. It's core finding: Your approach is wrong. Your asking the wrong people to build the solution. You aren't giving them clear enough direction on what they should build. You aren't helping them understand how this new service should operate or how it will affect their career and value to the organization. And more
Page 1 of 2 VMware's top brass Wednesday made sure its hundreds of partners gathered for the company's Partner Exchange conference understood the threat posed by public cloud provider Amazon in the software-defined data center era. Rallying partners to make sure VMware's virtualization stronghold extends into the public cloud, VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger told partners that if "a workload goes to Amazon, you lose, and we have lost forever." "We want to own corporate workload," said Gelsinger. "We all lose if they end up in these commodity public clouds. We want to extend our franchise from
These days, it seems that the whole world is gunning for Amazon. Who can argue with the success of their on-line retail ventures, Kindle franchise, and of course AWS? The secret to Amazon’s success is their ability to tune out the noise and focus on innovating, disrupting and creating new markets. Here’s 5 reasons how not to compete with Amazon AWS:
While Amazon’s competitors are busy building out their Cloud infrastructure offerings, they are too closely aligned to Amazon’s vision and business model. Meanwhile, Amazon is innovating and disrupting
Not so long ago, if you were like many CIOs or ops managers, you were consumed with issues related to providing power, space, and cooling for corporate datacenters. As the capabilities of server hardware continued to increase (Mooreâs Law stands the test of time), the workload generated by a typical application could no longer completely consume the resources of a single server. Vast amounts of valuable resources were sitting idle and burning capital with their power, space, and cooling requirements. Then datacenter virtualization stepped in and helped to solve many of these problems.
