Reuven Cohen's "Elastic Vapor" Blog In the next few years the a key opportunity for the emerging cloud industry will be on defining a federated cloud ecosystem by connecting multiple cloud computing providers using an agreeing upon standard or interface. There are a number of organizations looking into solving the problem of cloud federation. A fundamental challenge in creating and managing a globally decentralized cloud computing environment is that of maintaining consistent connectivity between various untrusted components that are capable of self-organization while remaining fault tolerant. In the next few years the a key opportunity for the emerging cloud industry will be on defining a federated cloud ecosystem by connecting multiple cloud computing providers using an agreeing upon standard or interface. In this post I will examine some of work being done in cloud... (more)

Cloud Computing's Watershed Week

As someone who has been following cloud computing since the start, there have been a few key moments in the progression of cloud computing from a fringe term to main stream concept. Among these include August 2006 with the private beta launch of Amazon EC2, June 2008 with what is now described as the "Week of Cloud" in San Francisco which included the launch of CloudCamp as well as several key cloud conferences. I believe this week is one of those times with the U.S Government's formal and vocal adoption of cloud computing. I'd like to recap a few of the important things have happe... (more)

Autoscaling in the Cloud with PubSubHubbub

Lately I've been really intrigued by the PubSubHubbub protocol (PuSH) and its potential use as an intercloud communication protocol for monitoring and auto scaling your external cloud or internal infrastructure (or both). For those of you not familiar with PuSH, it is a simple, open, server-to-server web-hook-based extension to Atom (and RSS) pubsub (publish/subscribe) protocol. Servers communicating via the PubSubHubbub protocol can get near-instant notifications (via webhook callbacks) when a topic (feed URL) they're interested in is updated. In a post to Techcrunch Josh Fraser d... (more)

Why Cloud Computing Is More Secure

Cloud Security Journal on Ulitzer In the midst of the 1990's economic bubble, Alan Greenspan once famously referred to all the excitement in the market as Irrational exuberance. Similarly in today's cloud computing market a lot of the discussions seem to be driven by a new set of irrational expectations. The expectation by some that cloud computing will solve all man's problems and by others the expectation that cloud computing is inherently flawed. Flawed by an ended less list of problems most notably that of security. Like most things in life, the reality is probably somewhere... (more)
