Tweet #1, thanks @DeviceQA
Is Cloud Computing a Threat to Older Tech Companies? How “old” is an “older” tech company? The problem with this headline is how misleading it is. That said, the post has plenty of great data points and does a nice job rating the accuracy of IDC’s predictions for 2012.
Tweet #2, thanks @CloudHeroesUK
The obligatory Cloud Infographic summarizing the environmental benefits of the Cloud. The author suggests that 40 million servers could be replaced by 2.4 million servers running at 100% capacity. <I would suggest perhaps 4.8 million servers running at 50% capacity.>
Tweet #3, thanks @CloudWorkforce
The Best Cloud Computing Companies and CEOs to work for in 2013. Data from Glassdoor.com -> SAP Scores #8 out of 27!
Tweet #4, thanks @mfauscette
Companies need to know – who knows what (that is easy) but where are they storing critical information in the Cloud. So many Cloud apps, so many rogue users – what happens when employees depart the company? Does not answer the question but brings the issue it front and center and provides an opportunity of various vendors to tout their solutions.
Tweet #5, thanks @alexfilip
