Cloud computing: Now & beyond 2013 - I - CXOtoday.com | Cloud Central | Scoop.it

If only there was some sort of scalable server system around
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

There is little doubt that incidents like what happened to Yahoo today is not good for the industry but let us not exaggerate. Outages (or over capacity crashes) can happen on any system and even company LANs are not immune to them.
