The one thing missing from Amazon's big cloud conference

Grazed from NetworkWorld. Author: Brandon Butler.

When Amazon Web Services has a big press or customer event, the company usually has one staple that it announces: Price cuts. Such was not the case earlier this month at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, the third-annual installation of the company’s big cloud conference. So what’s going on here? Have the prices in the cloud market stabilized?

Or is AWS attempting to be rise above the fray of other cloud providers who are undercutting the market leader on price? We asked AWS and they did not respond. But, analysts say while price is important, it’s not the end all for users deciding whether to use the cloud or not. About a year ago the cloud price wars in the IaaS cloud computing market were at their height...

Interop: The Future Of Cloud Computing

Grazed from InformationWeek.  Author: Charles Babcock.

Cloud computing is beginning to transform the way enterprises buy and use technology resources, and that was evident at the Interop 2014 conference and exhibition in New York this week. Cloud experts and practitioners of all stripes were in attendance and provided some insights -- positive and negative -- on where this trend is heading.

In a workshop on Designing Infrastructure for Private Clouds, Ivan Pepelnjak, the network architect for AG, a consulting company in Slovenia, hit upon one of the defining characteristics of cloud computing. "Cloud is all about self-service. … You need to be able to allow your [internal] customer to change the rules on the load balancer and firewall. When someone says, 'This will never fly in my organization,' just tell them, 'Your developers are already using Amazon.'"...

As Oracle's OpenWorld approaches and deck chairs shuffle, has Oracle finally figured out the cloud?

Grazed from GigaOm. Author: JonathanVanian.

Oracle’s OpenWorld is right around the corner and you can almost feel the collective frustration of the thousands in attendance who will more than likely be caught in horrible Bay Area traffic. But beyond the expectations of massive car pileups, I’m curious to see how Oracle attempts to position itself in the tech world as it continues to push its version of cloud computing, something it has been doing for the past couple of years to mixed results.

Last week’s surprise announcement that Oracle’s legendary co-founder Larry Ellison was transitioning from the role of CEO to CTO caused a stir when the news first came out, but for the most part, that’s not going to affect too much of Oracle’s technology direction, considering Ellison oversees over a quarter of the company’s shares and all of its engineers will continue to report to him...
