Service Assurance Via the Cloud, Part 3: Addressing the Physical

Performance Monitoring - A Thirty Day View
I remember when I saw the movie "Super Size Me" by Morgan Spurlock. I recall thinking about how much can happen in the course of just thirty days, not to mention how gross that food looked. For people, 30 days seems like a long time at first, until you look back on what happened over the course of those 30 days.

Now, before I go any further, let me be clear that yes, I know that tape is being used today, and not technically dead… yet. When nScaled and others...
How Analytics and Business Intelligence Are Accelerating Cloud Adoption
UK users now spend 300 billion hours online. Are you ready?
It's official: The UK is spending most of their time online, over 3 billion hours, with social media taking up the bulk of their attention. Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin, (all driven by cloud computing platforms) are sucking up 800 million hours of your time.
If you are left-brainer who exhibits a natural skepticism towards statistics such as those quoted above, you may be interested to know that Hitwise compiled these stats from anonymous ISP data logs, not user surveys.
