........ . The first sentence in a blog is very hard to write, so I just start with the second.
Too many blogs about Cloud Computing ?
So why do you start a new one ?
Well, after visiting CloudCamp I noticed a very special demand in the Cloud Space: Most CloudBlogs are around Witchcraft and Technologie, about Interfaces, APIs Scripting Languages and, when it comes to Sun: About Servers, Storage and Q-Layer.
I miss the data center
view on Cloud Computing. Business aspects, Legal aspects, how to make
money and how to save costs. At CloudCamp we discussed questions like
“Is there a difference between System Metering and System
Monitoring ?”. A question we answered in the old data center world
about 10 years ago.....Let's combine this experience with the enormous flexibility of Cloud Computing.
CloudFront and IFR
The Cloud front is
moving from the internet closer and closer to the data center. And if
more applications will be moved from “behind the firewall” into
the Cloud...we have to enhance Cloud technologies with the ideas,
experience, rules, regulations (sorry) of a classical data center. If
you don't follow the exact rules and quality, your next flight into
the Cloud will end with a ugly session with your auditors (And
The Evil Eye Of The Hurricane's Coming In Now For The Kill). IFR rules will keep us alive :-)
This is my first entry. Please let me know if I am right or wrong here :-)
Just hold your heading
