Managing Cloud Infrastructure at Cloud Expo 2011 New York

Cloud Expo 2011 New York $500 Savings here! The promise of cloud computing is that of virtually unlimited computing power that expands and contracts with the needs of the user.

Thank You Twitter Hackers

Twitter on Ulitzer The repeated Twitter hacking exposes the complex and serious security issue on the web.  Unfortunately for Twitter (Google Apps, Facebook, and others), the problems have unfolded in a public arena, forcing them respond quickly to calm users and resulting in a short term solution (that clearly has not been working!).  What is unknown to many internet users is that the problem doesn't end with Twitter's band aid approach, nor is the intrusion limited to internet sites. The security issues don't start here - they start with the platforms and applications that don't enable software to be developed with the proper security.  Fortunately for the software developers but unfortunately for the public, the greater problem has stayed out of the headlines of mainstream media outlets. It's time to end the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" attitude.  It is b... (more)

They want it done securely with privacy, and they want their IT departments to support all of their devices for all of their work applications and data too. From the IT mangers' perspective, they want to be able to deliver all kinds of applications using all sorts of models, from smartphones to tablets to ze... (more)
