RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:

"Cloud needs to follow standard IT best practices, and end-users need to implement appropriate plans for their business. Service providers are showing great signs that they understand this as well, as we are seeing more innovation and options for the end-user to better use the cloud.

This will translate into more distribution of the service provider platforms, which will yield more service delivery zones, and more networking capabilities for end-users to access and integrate them. This will ultimately allow businesses to better plan for failure, recover faster, and ultimately have better control over their SLAs.

When we are not prepared for failure, there’s frequently some level of chaos. Whether that’s figuring out how to contain and correct the failure, or figuring our how to move your workloads and data from one service delivery zone to another or to perhaps to another cloud service provider. All at the same time everyone else is trying to do it. Planning for failure includes avoiding the chaos and having clear expectations that are based on planning and the implementation of best practices."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.
