TV Goes Original On Xbox One Cloud Platform There are two influences that have made the new gaming console, Xbox One, to go to traditional media to succor its audiences: Cloud computing has made it possible to relay a number of media from one station, in either live relay, playback streaming or as content with ads.

Effects of Hardware Problems in Cloud based Systems Hardware has a key and exigent role in the modern Cloud architectures. No matter how optimized and state of the software we produce if the compatible and transcendent hardware is not deployed, the software will be of no use because of compatibility issues. Cloud computing asks for a colossal and efficient data centre oriented hardware structure which must be fast, responsive and compatible with SLA based applications. Failing to sub serve the software requirements will result in serious QoS issues resulting in depletion of profitability for the Cloud service providers. Enterprise level
Some Ideas on Optimizing Performance of a Cloud Deployment Cloud is fast becoming one of the primary factors ushering a paradigm shift in technology and the way business is done. With Cloud penetration increasing and big enterprises making the move to the Cloud, there’s a growing discussion around optimizing performance of the infrastructure that powers a Cloud. New ways are being pioneered on optimizing performance of a Cloud infrastructure. With the befitting benefits like flexibility, program development interfaces (APIs), self-service provisioning and automated de-provisioning, the Cloud does bring some undesired realities like latency, query lags, security vulnerabilities and aggregated failures.
Determine If Your Cloud Project Is Agile-Ready Agile development is for better or worse, the way to go with software development. Because of great competition in the space, and the fact that any small group of startups can even compete with large industry leaders, Agile development has become the weapon of choice to beat the competition in terms of time to market. But Agile is a double-edged sword and its methods are not really for everyone and not really for every project. Agile requires the right team, the right business philosophy, and of course the right project. There is no
Why Morgan Stanley Is Wrong About Amazon Web Services In their research report published the other week, Morgan Stanley came out projecting that Amazon Web Services (AWS) may be on track to reach $22 billion in revenues by 2022. Although it seems that the financiers understand the magnitude of the paradigm shift and the impact it will have on existing IT incumbents, they seem to have missed some key dynamics taking place in the IaaS cloud market, leading to conclusions that could end up being way off the mark. Originally launched in 2006, AWS is the undisputed cloud pioneer. With
