White House Backs Cities That Want to Build Their Own Super-Speed Internet | WIRED | Hybrid Cloud | Scoop.it
Five years before Google Fiber came to Kansas City, the residents of Chattanooga, Tennessee were already enjoying the ultra-fast speeds of gigabit internet speeds. But those connections didn’t come from a private company like Google.
John Rinehart's insight:

I think competition does spur innovation. Broadband requires a heavy investment and paybacks can be long. Should municipalities also consider offering their networks to alternative providers opposed to the municipalities doing it all?

The Enterprise and Hybrid Cloud: What CIOs Need to Know

The Enterprise and Hybrid Cloud: What CIOs Need to Know | Hybrid Cloud | Scoop.it
More companies are leaving public or private cloud only models, and moving to a mix of the two. Here's what CIOs need to know about hybrid cloud.
John Rinehart's insight:

"The emergence of the hybrid cloud model brings a lot to the table for CIOs looking to reevaluate their cloud computing structures. Because the hybrid cloud is so open-ended and customizable, IT managers don’t have to settle for one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, they have the opportunity to create unique models tailored to the nuances of particular industries, as well as the specific business goals of the organization. As always, there are factors to consider, like implementation costs and data loss risks—but the bottom line is that the hybrid cloud is worth a close look."
