Cloud Computing: Keep it simple, stupid!

Cloud Computing is the second half of the pie that you and I are confronted with daily. We need mobility, we need fast access, we need to get off those boxes under our shelves.

There is a much bigger shift we are looking at. I've mentioned the K-wave effect, I've said on several occasions that there is a lot of innovation and talent we will be able to tap on when we have a Tap-able Cloud. That wil eventually help converge the business and IT to one whole entity I've for long been calling the "BizBulk". That massive bulk will be measured multi-dimensionally through roll-forwardable dashboards. There will be loads of intelligent software floating on the cloud. (There is already so much!).

Once the IT age would have imploded and gone back to the castles (Data Centers of biggies and wannabes such as IBM, Cisco, Microsoft, etc), all we'd be left with is a cool looking device and the big question mark on it asking you: "Where do you wanna go today?". That is the Ideation Age I am talking about!

I have envisioned many things in the past that will be evolutionary (if not revolutionary) and help us solve complex problems.

Fool's agree too:

The same logic applies to cloud computing. It is, in fact, an astoundingly good idea that's anything but perfect. Ceding local control of data means trusting faraway servers to be secure. It also means trusting that service providers will take the proper steps to keep services available. Good work is being done in both areas.

Control is the issue, Stallman says. Fair enough. I even agree; as a user, I should be fairly compensated for allowing a service provider access to my data. Cloudy upstarts that get this will flourish. Those that don't, won't.

Either way, cloud computing is still the best technology I've ever seen. It connects people in ways closed desktop systems never have. And if we've learned anything from the history of computing, it's that systems are made more powerful when people are connected to them. Cloud computing enables connectivity like no other technology before it.

Avastu Blog is migrating to; 1st Jan 2009 live


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 - 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…
