The cloud market has evolved rapidly over the past few years. Here's what the cloud analysts predict for 2013.
Tom Sampey's insight:

1) Sugan Narayanan, SN, Author, 2013,'The cloud market has evolved rapidly over the past few years.', Business Innovation from SAP.

Hybrid Cloud Computing Revolution | Skytap

Hybrid Cloud Computing Revolution | Skytap | The Next Generation of Cloud Computing | Scoop.it
A hybrid cloud is two clouds working together. It could be your private cloud and a partner’s private cloud; however, most of the time, the two clouds working together are your cloud and a public cloud provider’s cloud.
Tom Sampey's insight:

1) David Davis, DD, Author, 2013, 'Hybrid Cloud Computing', Skytap Blog

2) The article states how easy and stress free a cloud server can be. 3)The author states that the the price is cheap and effective, which the price can be fixed to exactly how much you use it. 4) The authors research focuses on how the cloud servers/computing should become the center of attention for everyone due to how easy and effective the author makes cloud computing sound. 5) This article will be useful for toward the topic as the author states that the software will revolutionise how the servers and computers will react working together in harmony. 6) Some of the main limitations of this article are that it doesnt show the bad sides towards the cloud servers such as if they crash, how stable they are etc. The article is a biased towards the good sides of the cloud computing. 7) Subsequently the author puts forward his biased opinion which shows that the computing industry will soon upgrade their old servers for the cloud type. 8) The article can be put forward and be used within the chosen topic as it has some good points which when backed up with evidence will produce a strong arguement towards where cloud computing will be within the next 5-10 years.

Marks article could then be classed as bias as it only says why people shouldnt use the technology also his information isnt backed up by statistics to show how many people dislike cloud computing. 7) Ultimately Mark could do a bit more research and find out some statistics towards aspects of his article. 8) It has become evident that Mark has put forward some good arguements to why cloud computing may be going within the opposite direction which could if backed up with more research be used within my following report.

Tom Sampey's insight:

1) Thomas Metz, TM, Author, 2013, ' Facebook competing with Dell & HP by Designing its own Cloud Servers'. Business 2 Community. 

 

2)Within this article cloud servers are discussed to show how businesses are slowly turning to cloud servers and cloud computing to put the prices down within the business and help the stability. Facebook are following in Googles footsteps as they have already been sucessful doing this. 3) The author has used statistics to back up on how the business will save money via making the change to cloud servers/setting up cloud data centers. 4) The research which has been provided shows an outline to how the businesses will benefit and that other businesses will soon follow the upgrade to cloud servers/computing. 5) The article is useful because it shows that some on the bigger businesses such as Facebook and Google have already began the upgrade which will be followed by other people within the next 5 years. 6) The limitations of this article are that he doesnt show where he got the statistics from which could indicate its unreliableness to the extent of being unreliable unless it is backed up with further research. The author also doesnt state the bad parts of cloud computing and therefore is biased towards one side. 7) Therefore the author should indicate where he got his statistics from to show whether or not he is a reliable author. 8) This article wont be apart of the write up due to no evidence being showed that his statistics were reliable and that he didnt have any references from other sources to back up his point but it did give a good outline with the step towards where the computing/servers will be heading for businesses within the future.
