HP CEO: The challenges of cloud computing

HP CEO: The challenges of cloud computing

Summary: At the Gartner Symposium in Orlando, Fla., HP CEO Mark Hurd talks about how the company plans to layer cloud services on its infrastructure in the future. However, with more than 1,000 hacks a day, security creates an important need on differentiating what they put in public versus private clouds. "We wouldn’t put anything material in nature outside the firewall," Hurd says.

  • Security is a big concern

    The video is quite relevant. The issue of security in the cloud has grown quite big and the big vendors in this space are currently relying more on myth (see http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/future-of-work/misunderstanding-the-cloud-35315) than fact in order to dance around that. Kudos to HP for calling a spade, a spade.

      There?s nonstop talk about how cloud computing is in its infancy this week at GigaOm?s Structure conference in San Francisco. Nevertheless, more companies are favoring the cloud each day for different reasons, but there are a few that stick out.

        According to the ?inaugural Future of Cloud Computing Survey,? the primary drivers for cloud usage are more flexible scalability and the potential for lower costs on the part of the customers.

        For reference, the survey incorporated the responses of 413 participants from both the vendor and end user communities. It was conducted by a trio of companies heavily invested in cloud computing as well as the annual Structure conference: North Bridge Venture Partners, GigaOM Pro and The 451 Group.<br><br>One of the side effects of cloud computing that seems to be getting sidetracked is what could happen to IT personnel. The survey found that respondents were split on the impact of cloud computing on IT manageability, and at least 74% of respondents think cloud computing would lead to an increase in hiring or might not have an impact at<a href="http://ipadbagblog.com/"><font color="light&height"> ipad bag blog</font></a> of best <a href="http://www.sutudeg.org/"><font color="light&height">sutudeg community</font></a> the modern <a href="http://wposfv.com/"><font color="light&amp;height">education news</font></a> and country all.

    I first read http://www.huxi-cable.com/speaker-cable/it when I washttp://www.mingjiangnan.com/ about 11, after it first http://www.jihepackage.com/came out. Probably not http://www.jihepackage.com/the ideal ge. Her daughter, Molly Jong Fast, has published a book, The Sex Doctors in the Basement, which seems to have been re-titled, Girl [Maladjusted] for the paperback edition, about life growing up with her mother. I didn't find it to be verygood though. It was far too jokey in a self-consious sort of way and revealed more in what she was not telling than she does with the stories she chooses to relate, if that makes sense

    I have two http://www.cncwm.com/products/Crystal-Ornament.shtmlmainhttp://www.cncwm.com/ comments--first, that these argumentshttp://www.cncwm.com/ seem to me to be "deja vuhttp://www.cncwm.com/ all over again," meaning that that are pretty much the same (basic) arguments made against a common US currency among the states in our past. The single currency should and will survive, precisely because its framework provides a means for member states--and their people--to address the problems, while still enjoying the benefits--as we have since a single currency was introduced--of the single currency and the rapidly integrating economies.
