The Cloud in 2015: Startup Ecosystem Explosion
This is a follow-up blog that is part of a series of 2015 cloud predictions.
The first one, entitled When the Walls Come Down, had the following as the
central thesis: In 2015 the perceived costs of cloud migration for existing
production apps will drop by more than 50%; it will trigger a massive (and
fast) market share battle unleashed by unprecedented automation.
That takes me to prediction number two:
•The development of a new generation of software and service-centric
startups will leverage software and robust API integration to offer next
generation IT capabilities well beyond the walls of traditional IT,
•enhanced cloud disaster recovery, security and compliance, over and above
the capabilities of most firms;
•new PaaS offerings, including specialized big data platforms for
underserviced verticals, inc... (more)
This is the third in a series of cloud predictions for 2015, starting with
When the Walls Come Down, which predicted that workload migration (into the
cloud) costs would drop by more than 50% in 2015; then continuing with The
Cloud Startup Ecosystem Explosion, which predicted the impact that cloud
market share gains in 2015 would have on the evolution of a more robust and
powerful cloud ecosystem. That ecosystem would ignite a revolution in IT best
practices, akin to the rise of the personal computer and network, inside the
hallowed halls of IT.

Virtualization and cloud computing are promising to change the way in which
IT services are delivered and, in effect, transform computing as we know it
today. I think the promises are likely to come true, if and only if
critical technology issues are addressed.
Nicholas Carr told a recent audience at IDC Directions that "Cloud computing
has become the center of investment and innovation." While he is not a
technologist, his sometimes shocking insight into the transformation of IT
have been prescient, even if he doesn't sweat the details of how complex IT
infrastructures can mo... (more)
Greg Ness's Blog
Cloud computing has replaced virtualization as the new hot topic of 2008. Yet
underneath the headlines a very basic shift is taking place in the network
that promises even more conversations in the very near future. Let’s call
this shift the rise of Infrastructure 2.0 or the result of escalating
pressures on an already tired network infrastructure.
Over the last three decades we’ve watched a meteoric rise in processing
power and intelligence in network endpoints and systems drive an incredible
series of network innovations; and those innovations have led to the cr... (more)
