It is projected that cloud customers will not only use the traditional one-cloud solution but will start using a combination of public clouds including:
Local and low-cost clouds
Customized and specialized clouds that are technology and application-specific
High-performance and high-reliability clouds adapted for their special work load
Moving a software application to the cloud merely means running it in the web rather than on the traditional data center infrastructure.
The main advantages to migrate data and software operations to the cloud include Continue reading “Migrating the Cloud” »
Cloud computing has ben consistently increasing in popularity by taking advantage of third-party computing resources and networks to reduce costs and extend organization’s IT capabilities.
