Cloud is the word, as you’ve heard. It is definitely a hype word, but there is also a lot of substance to it.
ClubCloudComputing.com is for those who are critical yet willing to consider the benefits of cloud computing (see what is cloud), without losing sight of what can go wrong in adapting cloud computing. Cloud computing is tempting, especially for small enterprises. Larger enterprises also stand to gain a lot, but it takes extra care to avoid making a mess out of the IT landscape.
My name is Peter HJ van Eijk, and I have had my head in the clouds from before it was invented. Years ago I baptized my business ‘Digital Infrastructures’, because that is what I had been working on for most of my professional life. Nowadays we call that cloud computing and virtualization. I reckon those words will last a few more years, and with a little luck I don’t have to rebrand my business again soon.
I write, consult and train people. See my store/portfolio for details. I like to illustrate the big issues of cloud computing with examples that are simple and down to earth (see sushi in the cloud). It is my belief that if it can’t start out as a simple idea, it can’t be made to work. But you can also count on me to get into fundamental definitions, and not let fluffiness obscure our thinking.
