Cloud Computing

What is Cloud Computing? - Why use Clouds? - What do clouds have to offer? - How is Amazon, Microsoft , Google and Rackspace Clouds being used today? - What are the barriers to using Clouds? - How can there barriers be broken down? 

We believe Cloud Computing represents a major shift in the way everyone will use computers.

The jargonified benefits are huge; people will only pay for what they use, utilisation will improve by up to four times, the £ impact and the Green impact will significant. But....there is much confusion & a lot of unfounded fear and skepticism.

What does cloud computing mean for your business? Do you even need cloud computing? we aim to disscuss all these issues here.

There are questions over security, data location, service levels, control, management, but there are answers that will satisfy the majority of organisations. We are vendor neutral, but would like to knock down the barriers to information as well as adoption.
