Clouducation: Interesting reads for August 8-12

I'm going to start off this post with the "it's Friday, Friday" theme (i know and my appologies in advance).

Here are some interesting reads for this week. Enjoy!

Future of Cloud computing…more clouds. Seriously.

“The next big leap in both technology and business models around sharing elastic compute resources might be bidding for those resources at auction or acquiring them through a broker, according to a report issued Thursday from Forrester. The report argues that while the technologies aren’t here today, a business built on aggregating clouds from public and private networks and delivering capacity and services in an automated, on-demand fashion to companies will emerge by the end of this year, and standards will start appearing in 2012.”

The cultural difference between Black Hat and Defcon hacker events

You wonder why I have this as part of this week's post. I really enjoyed the underline sarcasm in this article. Pretty interesting snapshot of what goes on in these two very popular shows. Wonder if we have something similar for cloud computing? 

Cloud vendor rise to meet divergent demands of enterprise and service providers

after many failed attempts to sell replicas of cloud infrastructure platforms into enterprises, vendors have begun to tailor cloud products for the two sides of cloud. Even though enterprises don’t have the same needs as cloud providers, IT managers still see the benefits to the kind of commoditization and automation used by providers like Amazon Web Services.

Infographic: Netflix by the numbers

I love infographics! And I just realized that I could stream the first four seasons of MadMen on Netflix. So imagine the excitement when I saw this post! According to this article, Netflix has managed to grow its streaming video services from an added feature to its main business, surpassing Comcast, the nation’s biggest TV provider. Some interesting data points. I'm excited to see what Netflix will do next!
