When I was asked about innovation, the first thing I did was review my
research to get an idea of what my peers in the industry were predicting for
our parallel IT futures. Not surprisingly, they all reflected the same
sentiment: the cloud is growing, and employees will continue to bring their

Because the cloud is the common theme throughout all innova... (more)

Cloud, One of the biggest questions I often see asked is “Is Amazon EC2 as
a platform secure”? This is like saying is my vanilla network secure? As
you do to your internal network you can take some steps to make the
environment as secure as you can, such as:
- First read the Amazon Security Whitepaper and the Amazon discussion of
- Ensure the system key is encrypted at start-up
- Ensure you plan for load balancing in case an instance goes down. Ensure
Having just gone into competition with Google's Gmail Monday, IBM said
Tuesday that it's going to take on Amazon's S3 storage cloud and anybody else
in the storage cloud business by launching its own Smart Business Storage
Cloud along with a so-called Information Archive.
As with its day-old iNotes e-mail solution, which also targets Microsoft, IBM
is sticking to its knitting. It's not trolling for the great unwashed with

However, this private storage cloud is only the first of the cloud-based
