Private Cloud - The Future of IT?

Cloud Computing can be realized through multiple implementation models. One of the implementations that is gaining a lot of interest is the Private Cloud.  This article attempts to look at the key attributes of an ideal Private Cloud and takes a futuristic view of the Private Cloud in an enterprise from the IaaS perspective.

Amazon Enters Microsoft’s Turf of .NET PaaS

Within 24 hours, there have been umpteen number of articles, posts and tweets about how Google is all set to take Amazon head on! Almost 90% of the articles mentioned that Google is ready to lock horns with Amazon. But really, should Amazon be worried? No! Not at all! Amazon Web Services is ahead of any Cloud offering by leaps and bounds. The sheer breadth of services that AWS offers is mindboggling. The API that AWS designed for each of its service is considered to ... (more)
