When is a cloud not a cloud?

If you’ve decided that cloud computing doesn’t affect you, then you’re not alone. It’s surprising how many IT managers still think that cloud computing is all about outsourced hosting. It’s not.

Despite popular belief, cloud computing is more about new technologies that create monumental costs savings. Many of these new technologies are available hosted on a dedicated environment or INSIDE YOUR FIREWALL! Yes, it’s true… the cloud is chocked full of buzzwords, and “private cloud” is one of the most confusing.

So, please feel free to avoid the word “cloud”, but you may want to stay tuned into any technologies that cut your costs by more than half.
