computing in the cloud: setting expectations

11 Dec 2008 computing in the cloud: setting expectations

Joe Landman from ScalableInformatics has a great article in Linux Magazine on this subject:

… In my experience, the problem Cloud Computing is seeking to solve is to reduce the time, complexity, and cost to stand up and scale up (or down) applications. That is, it is not about multiplying processing cycles in a computing intensive application, but enabling that application to be scaled up or down in terms of utilization and demand. Reduce the marginal cost of adding (or removing) users and applications.
