Workflows in the cloud are on track to expand to the point that by 2018, three quarters of all workflows will be done in the cloud. Think about that for a moment. Within four years, three quarters of data processed will be processed in the cloud, if an article I came across in CloudTech is correct. The article goes on to present some interesting statistics from Cisco’s latest Cloud Index study, such as a predicted quadrupling of global cloud IP traffic over the next five years.

Kandy is a platform that makes it easy to embed communication features like video, chat, voice, presence (i.e., whether a user is online or not), screen sharing, and conferencing into any website.
Attending Gigaom Structure was an exercise in getting fire-hosed with the leading edge innovation that public cloud providers are bringing to their customers worldwide. These innovations not only will have a profound effect on public cloud computing, but also will ultimately impact data center architectures, costs, and benefits worldwide.
We have all heard the hype that the cloud is the way forward in the twenty-first century, and I am sure you have heard the claim from cloud advocates that at some point 100% of computing will reside in the cloud. This seems logical, based on current trends and a quick glance over the announcements of new products and services released each and every day. But in all honesty, these cloud-based products and services are designed to work best when there is high-speed connectivity between the end user and the cloud.
Having twice been told by federal courts that the FCC does not have the authority to regulate the Internet in the same manner in which it regulates voice communications (that quaint POTS service that ran over phone lines), the FCC is now back with an attempt to impose net neutrality within the bounds defined by the courts.
There is an old saying, “the definition of insanity is to repeat the same thing over and over and expect a different result.” The way many enterprises are approaching the cloud, insanity would be a great way of classifying it. When we look across most enterprises, we see a collection of technologies from every era of computing. We have just about every vendor solution imaginable—often multiple versions of products from the same vendor—and a hodgepodge of architectures that makes spaghetti look organized.
