Undoubtedly one of the key reasons for so many innovations happening in the information technology space is consumerization. While some feel that consumerization has reached the tipping point, consumers (and businesses as well) are still looking for newer avenues to do things more intuitively and effectively.

Open Source, the Fuel for Cloud Disruption

Open source has proven to be a good option for building, managing, and delivering scalable infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) clouds and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) clouds.

The Changing Face of Disaster Recovery in the Age of Cloud Computing

Disaster Recovery (DR) has typically only been used by organizations for applications deemed to be mission critical. This was because organizations didn't want to incur the expense associated with DR for less important applications. Today, because of cloud computing, many organizations are considering the use of DR for as many applications as is essential for the business. DR in the cloud is relatively a new concept still and, like many technology trends we've seen so far, there's a lot of hype and misinterpretation out there. Multiple schools of thought exist on whether or not ... (more)
