Internet 2.0 = Cloud Computing!

Making use of all the knowledge online is a huge challenge that might be solved by cloud computing, which researchers say is the next logical step for the Internet.

Computer scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are working with colleagues at Hewlett-Packard, Intel and Yahoo, as well as researchers in Europe and Asia, to build a global test bed for exploring system designs for the future.

Cloud computing involves supplying applications over the Internet rather than loading them on an individual user's computer. An example is a word processing program supplied by Google that lets users compose documents without the program on their computers.

Within six years, this process will expand so that corporations will rely less on on-site information technology infrastructure and more on applications supplied online by the "cloud," said Barry Lynn, chief of 3Tera, a California-based software company.

"Companies spend billions on information technology, which isn't their core competency, because they've had no choice," Lynn said. "That's changing."

Cloud computing will go beyond replacing corporate data centers, said Michael Heath, an Illinois computer scientist who is among the leaders building the global cloud test bed.

Avastu Blog is migrating to IdeationCloud.com; 1st Jan 2009 live

YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING. WITHIN 2 SECONDS YOU WILL BE REDIRECTED TO THE NEW HOME OF AVASTU BLOG. PLEASE DO UPDATE AVASTU BLOG'S URL to : http://www.ideationcloud.com on your website.

I will send out emails personally to those who are using my link(s) on their sites.

Thanks much for your co-operation and hope you enjoy the new site and its cool new features :-)




Not like the site is unlive or something..on the contrary, its beginning to get a lot of attention already. Well most of the work is done, you don't have to worry about anything though:

What won't change

Links/Referrals: I will be redirecting the links (all links which you may have cross-posted) to IdeationCloud.com - so you don't have to do anything in all your posts and links. Although, I would urge however that you do change the permalinks, especially on your blogs etc yourselfThis blog is not going away anywhere but within a few months, I will consider discontinuing its usage. I won't obviously do …

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
