Are you ready for multi-cloud?

We knew multi-cloud was coming, and now that Microsoft and Google have a viable product in the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) space, multi-cloud may be in your future.  

If you consume software-as-a-service, you most likely are already “multi-cloud”.  In this article, my focus will be on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and I’ll examine the value of multi-cloud, the considerations, and address what I think are myths.

The benefits of cloud computing continue to grow

In May of 2010, I wrote my first article dedicated to explaining the benefits of cloud computing (check out that dated graphic on that page).  I updated that article in August of 2012.  Now, it’s time for another update, or really,  more of an addendum.  The cloud industry has been unfolding for quite some time now and it’s clear that it’s not a “flash in the pan” or some trendy thing that will die.  In fact, it’s more relevant today than ever before!  In addition, there are more players and new technologies.  And, more importantly, the value & benefits continue to grow.
