Cloud Infographic: FBI’s Magic Lantern With much of the discussion over the past several weeks surrounding government spy programs on the general public. We find this to be a suitable infographic surrounding some of the concerns we face. Infographic Source: MobiStealth
A Comprehensive Guide To Corporate Travel Management Yes, yes, we can certainly video conference, and I am one of the first persons to say that however, there are times we cannot do without actually traveling to the location and handling things in person. This article is for those times. And yes, I realize it’s not really a technical paper as is the norm here at CloudTweaks. However, we have sometimes featured non-technical assets that we feel will benefit our business readership – on sales methodologies, human resources, etc. On that ground, this asset can truly be an asset to our readers. Also,
Cloud Computing May Fast-Track Road Operability Cloud computing is making infrastructural breakthroughs on the roads even as the term ‘infrastructure’ becomes more tech and virtual than its original meaning. Even if one hears of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in computer matters, pretty often, it might be soon possible to think out of the box and attach it to the physical tarmac. In Europe, for example, plans are under way to ensure that the operability of transcontinental routes improves. Small operators will be able to collaborate with large consortiums to make use of every means of transport possible be it
Cloud Helps Europe’s Small Biz Smash the Economy The tribulation of the European economy has sunk dramatically enough to warrant the front page of even American financial headlines. Yet in the face of such widespread woe has arisen a new population of pliable SMEs, or small- or medium-sized enterprises, throughout the continent. Cloud computing has reinvigorated the SME set, particularly those with a small staff, with its simplicity of use, speedy implementation, and a cost-effective scalability that makes traditional server solutions seem arthritic and old hat. Cloud is also reducing their costs of operation by an attractive range — by
Why Is Europe Not Storming The Cloud? It is expected that Europe will be behind the US by a minimum of two years when it comes to cloud computing adoption, due to four major issues: the current euro crisis, advanced privacy rules, the changing political decision-making, and local business needs. These are the primary reasons why Europe is taking a much slower pace in adopting cloud computing as compared to the USA. Analyst group Gartner believe that although there is high interest in cloud computing in Europe, there are so many local complications that it could result in delaying adoption
US to Europe: “Eat My Cloud Dust” Europe may trump the United States in such matters as academic prosperity in mathematics and sciences, as we know it celebrates its monarchs with far more compelling pomp and circumstance that we could possibly muster for our heads of state. But clout in cloud remains one discipline in which America continues to exert overwhelming dominance over the continent across the pond. This isn’t to say that nations like France, Germany, and even economically beleaguered Greece aren’t curious about cloud and the shot in the arm it could offer to their collective IT acumen.
Cloud Computing May Open Up Firms To Hundreds Of Millions In Fines Under EU Laws One of the major attractions of cloud computing is its universal accessibility; in essence, it is computing without borders. However, the world is divided into distinct countries, and with that come different rules and regulations. Consequently, this can and does give rise to different problems (see: Computing Without Borders – What Works, What Doesn’t). While it is true that American companies rule the roost as far as provision and consumption of cloud computing services are concerned, it’s also an established fact that there exists a
