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

Today Microsoft released a concept video about how they see the future of productivity is going to be. We would like to share the video with our readers. I am not sure what timeline they are talking about but I will expect most of what is shown to be available in 3-5 years. Some of […]

From time to time, we post videos from different vendors on their take about cloud marketplace. Below is a video of Okta CEO, Todd McKinnon, talking to two of their VCs Ben Horowitz (from Andreessen Horowitz) and David Weiden (from Khosla Ventures) about their take on where cloud is heading. While we take pride in […]

We were able to assemble a powerful cast of experts to give the rest of us advice on becoming a Social Business. But we did it with one catch. We asked these 9 experts to do it in under 60 seconds. Thank you Robert Lavigne for essentially doing all of the video, post production and […]

This is pretty cool. A minute and a half time lapse of a data center build out in Colorado. It’s kind of interesting, in a hardware hacker geek kind of way. 🙂 (Cross-posted @ Composite Code)

Last week at OSCON 2011, Dell unveiled Dell OpenStack Cloud, its OpenStack based solution to go against the likes of IBM targeting both the enterprise and service provider markets. While talking about Dell’s attempts against the unified computing efforts by IBM, Cisco, HP and Oracle, I highlighted how Dell is taking a more “open” approach […]

I wanted to post these two keynotes from OSCON 2011. They really bring out the spirit of exploration, adventure, care, and doing things bigger than oneself. This is about doing things that go beyond the cat picture of the day. These presentations, well, I’ll let them speak for themselves. Absolutely great!
