“[…] the operating model of many IT departments is shifting away from capital expenses (CapEx) when possible and toward a primarily operational expense-funded (OpEx-funded) model for completing projects. A large component of recent successes in these areas is due to a shift of non-premises, corporately managed resources to public cloud infrastructure and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms. Since cloud resources can be billed just like a monthly phone bill, shifting IT resources to the cloud also shifts the way the budget for those resources is allocated.”

In “Building a Modern Data Center – Principles and Strategies of Design”

All of technology is a manifestation of yearning. The dominions of fabled gods and heroes are the real drivers of invention. Well before SF mythology planted the seeds. But I’ve yet to read a SF book wherein the Cloud Computing concept and technology is accurately depicted. While I was reading this book, I kept thinking on Alan Turing, who wanted to create a machine that could think and be smart; but remember that he thought of that in a world where there was none of that, i.e., he created machines and started that road of newness. In this day and age, it’s very easy to think things up, because we’ve all sorts of technological stuff and the only thing that I find closer to what Turing was looking for, are the algorithms that detect my pattern of preferences in a web browser and make suggestions to what I should be buying.

If you're into IT and Data Centres in particular, read the rest of the review on my blog. ( )
