Cloud News: Week In Review: December 7th, 2012 For anyone who was still harboring doubts about the importance of the Cloud this week has brought news and changes that have sealed the extraordinary influence the Cloud has on our lives. From CPAs who are planning to adopt their business strategies to factor in the Cloud, to Intel who has recently gave a statement about how the ‘Big Four’ Cloud customers are influencing their hardware development, every business is somehow being touched by it or is even thriving on expanding the range of services that the Cloud can provide. CPA Role Will Change to Include the Cloud
Cloud Infographic: The Future Of Big Data Big data is not new. It has existed for ages and can be attributed even to the initial years of computing. However, one might do well to consider why is there an increased buzz around this now. The answer is quite simple: Significant advances that have been brought about by x86 hardware have actually helped in bringing computing power to the masses. However, with new technologies, cloud computing has extended this power. Now, users have extended perimeters, while still being able to control costs effectively.

Big Data and eDiscovery: Professionalism Pays Big Data is a hot concept in the business world right now. As a business phenomenon, the immediate benefits of utilizing Big Data are part reality and part hope. On the reality side, most medium and large-sized organizations do have some form of Big Data issues to contend with, meaning they have data sets so large and complex that they are difficult to process using on-hand database management tools and other tools – but because they have Big Data, they also have the desire to mine it, use it and gain insights related to the business,
Survival In The Cloud Depends On Experimentation I was fascinated to hear Jeff Bezos comment that Amazon’s expected $1.5 billion in revenue via their Amazon Web services business was successful due their focus on experimentation. The experimentation paradigm is the most important strategy for cloud executives to execute successfully, lest they fail to take full advantage of the monumental opportunity the cloud is offering. Our brains are actively involved in mental experiments almost continuously. We’re always speculating about what comes next and what our response will be. However, the experimental process Bezos is referring to is something much more formal and takes a lot more effort. Focusing
Robin Hood Gone Evil: Loophole Leading To Cloud Pickpocketing Identified Researchers at North Carolina State university and University of Oregon have proposed a jaw-dropping price tag for performing heavy duty cloud computing task – as low as zero dollars. Experiments reveal that cloud-based web browsers can be exploited to hijack the underlying computational power, and that as well, in total anonymity. The result could be as unforgivable as cloud computing time theft of mammoth proportions. The pickpocketed resources, once fallen into the wrong hands, can be used for just about anything, including brute force password crack attempts, denial of service attacks and other genres
Cloud Infographic: Fresh Insights Into Cloud Adoption Trends Cloud computing is now in heavy use in the industry and even the consumer market is starting to consider the benefits of cloud computing. Even though it is using the same technology that we have since more than 10 years ago, the cloud computing paradigm made all of the difference by simply changing the implementation of networking technology. But what exactly drives the development of cloud technology, what motivates its constant update, and what prevents people from adopting it? Infographic Source: Capgemini
