    James Bourne

    Cloud storage provider Box is offering 50GB’s worth of free storage for users who sign up to its service in the next month – twisting the knife further into rival Dropbox, whose service went down over the weekend. Dropbox hit the skids after what VP of engineering Aditya Agarwal described as a routine server upgrade, with a bug installed on active servers bringing down the show.

    3 ways application development is thankful for MSPs

    LogicWorks

    Smaller organizations have few, if any infrastructure-specific employees, but instead focus hiring product and development roles to improve the development cycle and strength of features for an application. This makes a lot of sense, especially when provisioning cloud-based infrastructure has never been easier. Yet, even with outsourced infrastructure, the actual responsibility of managing the more traditional parts of IT fall on the development staff. Where does that leave an organization with an over-taxed development team and not enough infrastructure management knowledge internally? Managed services, of course!

    CipherCloud: NSA PRISM scandal helped company grow “tremendously”

    James Bourne

    When the NSA PRISM revelations hit back in June, it initially spelled bad news for many cloud industry players, especially in the US.

For San Jose-based cloud information protector CipherCloud, however, it was a different story.

    The reality of data security in the cloud

    LogicWorks

    Data in the cloud is increasingly viewed as the reality of IT infrastructure management. With such ubiquitous data storage on cloud-based, cloud-based is at odds with the naysayers who continue to cite security concerns as a reason not to move data to the cloud. So we have a discrepancy – cloud data storage is widely used, yet there are concerns about the security (compliance and privacy also) of the data itself. What gives?

    PaaS has evolved quickly...and will continue to do so

    Ovum StraightTalk

    Today’s PaaS is quite different from that of yesterday, and this can cause confusion. Its rapid evolution has so far partly reflected the evolution of the overall cloud computing market. PaaS has, for example, evolved from a focus on public clouds to private and hybrid clouds, from green-field to legacy applications, and from being packaged with its own infrastructure services to supporting third-party (mostly IaaS) services.

    People power: Why staff are driving cloud adoption

    Easynet

    Businesses are adopting cloud services, albeit more cautiously than anticipated. Much has been written about vendors hyping cloud services, and adoption rates not living up to the propaganda. Indeed TechTarget’s Cloud Pulse Survey found that public and private clouds have reached the same level of market penetration at around 25%.
