Cloud Cost – How Are Cloud Resources Metered?

electric-meters small

One of the most common questions asked by folks who are starting their cloud exploration is, “how is all this billed”? The answers can range from simple to mind-numbingly complex. Why the lack of standardization? Because there are multiple clouds, and because each cloud is designed to extremely flexible leading to an explosion in options. The economics as well as the buying behaviors in the cloud are quite different. Cloud is characterized by a) On-demand and b) Metered. Read more in this UberCloud blog from Thomas Francis HERE.

Top 10 Cloud Technology Investments, for the next 5 years, and Hybrid Cloud is growing the fastest

Top 10 cloud trends smallCloud adoption is increasing rapidly by enterprises due to various factors such as the need for agility, on-demand scalability, flexibility, and cost effectiveness. The cloud offers pay-as-you-go service for users, which helps in reducing costs to a great extent. Cloud users are provided with Disaster recovery and security services, which makes it a reliable and secure source for data storage and management. A detailed analysis of Top 10 cloud technologies has been covered by Markets & Markets Research which will be helpful for players as well as end users: And, no surprise, Hybrid Cloud is the top most technology trending with higher revenue returns. The hybrid cloud market is expected to have the largest market size, growing from USD 33.28 Billion in 2016 to USD 91.74 Billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 22.5%.

Hybrid HPC – The next step towards a more flexible and agile High-Performance Computing Infrastructure

HPE HPC small

This HPCwire article by Bill Mannel, HPE’s VP & GM for HPC Solutions describes the benefits and trend towards Hybrid HPC, HPE’s next-generation HPC hardware/software stack including on-premise resources seamlessly integrating additional on-demand public cloud resources from HPE cloud partners. While HPC is one of the fastest growing IT segments, many organizations lack the vital tools and expertise to operate a traditional HPC environment. For these organizations, the question is how to dramatically simplify their infrastructure and reduce costs, without compromising on performance. Hybrid HPC is the new reality for those looking to evolve and compete in the digital age. Migrating to a hybrid infrastructure allows organizations to seamlessly tap into existing on-premises resources as well as scale resources on-demand in the cloud.

Insurance Solutions Company Munich Re in the Cloud: The most innovative analysis of weather risks

Munich RE smallFor a long time Munich Re has been using analytical models that can calculate weather risks with an unbelievably large number of parameters. But it is only now that the computing power is available to analyze these large amounts of data in a comprehensive and deep way. The cloud provides a new impetus for risk assessment and climate research. You have to understand natural disasters to be able to help affected people quickly and effectively. Therefore, among other things Munich Re has been dealing with climate change for more than 40 years. “We already stated in a publication on floods in 1973 that climate change could alter the risks of natural disasters”, says Ernst Rauch, Chief Climate and Geo Scientist at Munich Re. Read this article about how the Azure Cloud was a breakthrough in weather and climate data analysis for Munich Re.

Dassault: Companies are harnessing the public cloud as a critical enabler for competitive business

Cloud TrendThe new Dassault Compass Magazine looks at cloud: Faster time to market, lower costs and closer connections with partners and customers – the cloud brings these benefits and more to businesses of all sizes. But all clouds are not equal, and organizations that have tried both on-premise and private cloud models are moving to gain advantages that only the public cloud can deliver. “Companies that have made the move to cloud are achieving measurable improvements in cost, quality and business agility, and the number-one benefit that many leaders saw from adopting cloud was time to market.” Read the cover story HERE.

Supercomputing for Engineers . . . Finally!

supercomputer smallWe have all heard of supercomputing. Most of the press today goes to applications such as machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), and big data. It also makes sense that traditional onsite data centers are giving way to the cloud for crunching all the numbers. The benefits are clear and well understood: no purchase of hardware, no IT professionals to maintain the hardware, no physical building to house hardware, no energy costs to run the hardware, etc… There is one industry though that I feel has not been able to reap the benefits of this shift in access to computing. It is especially odd because this group is composed of technologists creating the next generation of products. That’s right folks, I am talking about engineers.

Cloud HPC Benefits Go Beyond Cost Savings

Dollar bundleThe enterprise CIO’s world has changed. They are being asked:  “What is our Cloud strategy?”  There are three reasons why CIO’s are on the receiving end of this tough question:

1) Everyone, including your company’s CFO is now using Cloud for her personal music collection. She’s done the math, she’s seen the ease-of-use.
2) Product development cycles are shrinking due to competition. Waiting for compute time to become available feels so old-school.
3) GPU’s, FPGA’s, faster network interconnects are too hard for the IT team to catch up with. Cloud providers take these novel technologies out of the IT team’s ever expanding To-Do list and put it in the hands of the users.
