Cloud computing

Filed under: Uncategorized — hayesjupe @ 4:28 pm

Cloud computing – lets dress up an existing offering (hosting ervices) and claim its different. go salespeople…. and gullable management…..

It is however heart-warming to see more and more people commenting along the same lines…. there seems to be a growing chorus – at least in the web sites i visit, that cloud is a bunch of wank.

Ofcourse hosted services have their place – if you dont care about your IP being stored elsewhere, hosted mail is a great example of something that scales well and is low cost to be hosted elsewhere. I would never recommend it – but i get why some corporates use it.

Anyhoo – this all came up purely because i met with a couple of MS guys last week when they were over in little ol Adelaide – and MS, as we all know, has a massive push on cloud and all their AM’s etc are goaled on cloud sales…. so it was kinda cathartic to let them know what we (myself and one of my guys) think of the cloud crap… go sell it via HP – who dont care about offering any value to clients…. but leave us the hell out of that rubbish.
