Solid post by Inspired Magazine on what the cloud means for web design. I got a first hand lesson when we created http://www.curecancerstarter.org.

The sophisticated file management of cloud computing allows more file size without crushing network performance. This means we won't have to create "lowest common denominator" designs that bore everyone to tears but load fast anymore (or that is the theory :). M

Thanks to the NSA, quantum computing may some day be in the cloud | ComputerWorld.com

Thanks to the NSA, quantum computing may some day be in the cloud | ComputerWorld.com | Cloud (EN - IT) | Scoop.it

The National Security Agency (NSA) is spending some $80 million in basic research on quantum computing. And what the NSA spends its research money on may ultimately help commercialize quantum computing -- and even make it accessible via the cloud.

 

This is what Defense Department agencies do: They fund basic research that private industry sees as too risky, but if the work leads to breakthroughs, it's the commercial sector that may benefit the most.

 

Information about the NSA's quantum computing research comes from documents acquired by Edward Snowden and published by the Washington Post. These documents use macho sounding names for the quantum computing effort, including "Owning the Net (OTN)."

 

Although the revelation may create another uncomfortable Big Brother moment for the NSA, the more important question is whether it -- and the government as a whole -- is spending enough on quantum computing.

 

The U.S. isn't alone in this area. The U.K. government recently announced plans to spend $444 million to create five quantum computing centers. Canada's Institute for Quantum Computing is more than a decade old. China, Russia and the Europeans are also all investing in quantum research.

 

"It's an academic race at the moment," said Earl Joseph, an analyst at IDC who noted that defense agencies have been funding quantum computing efforts for over a decade. "The goal is to fund basic research and make new discoveries that may be useful for our safety and national defense."

IBM pumps $1.2 billion into global cloud data centers | NetworkWorld.com

IBM pumps $1.2 billion into global cloud data centers | NetworkWorld.com | Cloud (EN - IT) | Scoop.it

Dispelling any lingering doubt that IBM sees cloud computing as the way of the future, the company announced that it will invest US$1.2 billion this year in expanding its global cloud infrastructure.

 

"Having lots of data centers in lots of different countries around the world will be important in the long term," said IBM SoftLayer CEO Lance Crosby. "We want the world to understand that cloud is transformational for IBM."


The company plans to open 15 new data centers this year, more than doubling the cloud capacity it acquired when it purchased SoftLayer last year for $2 billion. It plans to combine the new data centers, the existing SoftLayer data centers, and the data centers it already ran before the SoftLayer purchase into a single operation that would provide public and private cloud services to its customers, as well as provide services for internal operations.

 

While IBM has remained relatively quiet about its cloud plans, at least in comparison to Microsoft and Amazon Web Services, it has been busy preparing for the cloud-centric future, said Rebecca Wettemann, a vice president at the enterprise IT analysis firm Nucleus Research. This announcement is the logical next step for the company, Wettemann said.

 

"IBM has always taken a measured approach to announcements. But IBM has quietly been running data centers for a long time, and the IBM cloud has been established," she said. "We've seen a slow transformation of IBM from a services company to a software company, and now to a cloud company."
