~John M. Willis does a nice interview with a man from Cloud Camp Toronto about his exploration of different cloud providers for his Web video service startup. There are pros and cons with RightScale, 3tera, Elastra, Mosso, Amazon Cloudfront, etc. I think he said his name is Mark Bobson, but Willis doesn’t tag it. Hope I got the spelling right!
(By the way, John, I enjoyed this interview, but I think your Science Logic You’re on my Fedora video was a riot… )
~Another interesting one is on the up and coming whurley cloud computing blog on Infoworld has him discussing the costs of downtime for the cloud. Will this be a barrier to adoption? I wondered why all the research I’ve been reading misses availability as a top barrier, and whurley nails it.
~Is the relational database doomed? You tell me.
Happy Valentine’s Day and President’s Day to everyone!
