If you ever wanted a painless way of transcoding video to some 120 different devices, then the new Elastic Transcoder service from Amazon Web Services is the service you are looking for. This is probably the easiest service to use of all the Amazon Web Services out there. All you have to do is record […]

Recently I installed the Github for Windows App. It’s a great app, however, I’d rather not use it for the day to day interactions I have with Git. I have a lot of branching, forking and merging to do that just doesn’t happen to well with the app. It’s a great app, but overall I’m […]

Morning! I put together a video late last night based on setting up a Cloud Foundry instance with Iron Foundry extensions. It’s a little long, since I’ve mostly *not edited* it. The instructions have been available for a while but I thought, why not make a video and publish it. In the very near future […]

Intel, the portland based microprocessor vendor, is also a large enterprise IT user. They have large number of employees spread all over the world and they have various divisions including manufacturing. We thought it will be a good idea to talk to them and find out how they are leveraging cloud computing. As a part […]

The cutesy video above was created by SAP, the first part talking about the benefits of Cloud ERP, the integrated approach in general, and while the last minute turns into a SAP Business ByDesign pitch, it could very well be viewed as overall industry promotion, applicable to archrival NetSuite, and to some extent Workday, and […]

I have been arguing how the future of IT is going to be dominated by services around big data and have even proposed a model for the next generation of PaaS. I started thinking towards this direction after a chat I had with Mike Hoskins, CTO of Pervasive Software, when we met at the sidelines […]

Way back when (over a year ago in fact) the second paper released in the CloudU series was on Cloudonomics – the study of the economic impacts and drivers for cloud computing. Having spent years watching this space, I’m continually bombarded by questions from customers, and assertions from vendors about the massive cost-savings that cloud […]

Last month Open Data Center Alliance (ODCA) held their first conference by name Forecast 2012. I had an opportunity to moderate a panel on Cloud Transparency. Cloud Transparency is still a new idea for people but a vital one needed to build the much needed trust for organizations wanting to move their workloads to cloud. […]

From time to time we add videos of services and products offered by vendors. Yesterday, I attended a local event where Jared Wray, CTO of Tier 3 (previous CloudAve coverage), talked about their approach to PaaS. I had my video camera handy and recorded it to share with public. Here is the video of his presentation. […]

I didn’t see this one coming – but it makes perfect sense. Cisco communicates to the EU that Microsoft and Skype together may not be such a good thing for the industry, and thus appealed the approval of the merger to the EU. That isn’t in itself too surprising until you consider that the EU […]

Alistair Croll, Chair of Cloud Connect event, gave a brilliant keynote which gets everyone thinking. For the sake of those who didn’t attend the event, he has put up a video of his keynote. We thought we should share it with CloudAve readers who didn’t attend the event. Enjoy Alistair’s keynote that could get us […]

When technology shifts occur slowly, dramatic changes in how we live take place. Electricity allowed us to work late at night as opposed to until sundown. But when technology changes are more rapid – we tend to force it to adapt to our defined norms – baby steps. [eventually this post will get to the […]

This talk is so right, but could it be so wrong at the same time?
…click through to see the video…
Just watch this, that’s all I have to say. Jason is so right about this topic. Here’s a few quotes to convince you.
“I’m going to talk about work, and why people can’t seem to get things done at work…”
“If you ask people the question, “where do you go when you really need to get something done?” you typically get three different types of answers; one is a kind of a place, a location or a room, another is a moving object, a third is a time…”
“The Train” < – That one caught my fancy, if you've ever talked to be about transit you know that one caught me… 🙂
"What you almost never hear people say is "the office""
"Managers and bosses will tell you the distractions at work are things like Facebook, Youtube…" "…and they'll go so far as to ban it…" "…what is this China?!"
"The real problem in the modern office is the M & Ms" < – Oh hell yeah, so very true.
"Manager's jobs are really to interrupt people…" "…they don't really do work so they have to interrupt you."
"You would never see a spontaneous meeting of employees, no, managers do that…"

It is Friday and we need some food for thought for the weekend. Here is an interesting video which we thought might be interesting to CloudAve readers. Thanks to Reuven Cohen for the link
