Private clouds are dead—but there’s an afterlife

InfoWorld on 14/06/2019 pm30 12:00:00

Traditional private clouds are on their way out. I’m talking about the open standards-based stuff that was huge a couple of years, but fell behind in features or functions compared to the public cloud providers. Other factors included complexity of installation and configuration, as well as the fact that you still owned hardware and needed data center space.I still consider the concept of a “private cloud” a useful architectural pattern, in some cases. Some enterprises have special needs where traditional private clouds still fit—few and far between, but they do exist.[ Learn all about the cloud at InfoWorld.

The cloud is the greener way to go

InfoWorld on 11/06/2019 pm30 12:00:00

I live in Northern Virginia, near Ashburn. If you’ve ever driven down the Greenway, the toll road through Ashburn, you’ll get an idea of the number of data centers in town—hundreds, with more being built each year.

They are never labeled for security reasons, but I think for PR reasons as well.[ Learn all about the cloud at InfoWorld. Start with the basics: What is cloud computing?
