The History of Cloud Computing: Two Decades in Review (Part 1)

Posted by Jacob Ben-David on Jan 22, 2020 10:53:00 AM
Introduction

As we enter a new decade, we decided to take a look back at the history of cloud computing and how the space has evolved from the early 2000s to today.

This article is the first part of a blog series. This article will cover the 2000s decade (2000-2009), which marked the emergence of the cloud computing space.

The modern Cloud computing space enabled many of the innovative technologies and solutions we have seen over the last two decades.

Technically, concepts of cloud computing can be traced back to the 1960s - but to me, the origin story of the modern cloud computing can be attributed to Salesforce.com, which was founded in 1999 and later launched one of the first successful public Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings.

As cloud computing gained momentum during the mid-2000s, many organizations struggled to understand what exactly 'Cloud Computing' is. A memorable example is when Larry Ellison, the founder and CEO of Oracle Corporation at the time, shared his thoughts in 2008 on Cloud Computing (a must listen). While Larry Ellison’s provocative comments highlight his lack of understanding of cloud computing at the time, most people were in the same boat and did not fully realize its benefits yet either.

One of the contributors for the confusion was the common practice of ‘Cloudwashing,' where vendors took their legacy software solutions, made them accessible over the internet and marketed them as cloud solutions.

Unlocking the Highest Value of Cloud Optimization

Posted by Charles Crouchman on Jan 13, 2020 3:30:00 PM

The overwhelming complexity of multicloud has created well-known challenges for organizations as they implement new technologies. Despite these obstacles, the pressure to deliver seamless customer experiences has never been higher. And while assuring application performance is top of mind for all IT and business leaders, organizations don’t have an unlimited budget to do so. Application performance must be managed economically, which is why many organizations are looking to third-party platforms to assist them with managing trade-offs between performance, cost, and compliance.

The Power of Automation on IT Career Advancement

Posted by Eric Wright on Jan 8, 2020 3:08:00 PM

We all know the headline that will read “automation is taking away jobs”. What we have to see beyond the headline is that it’s a good thing. It doesn’t take long to realize the benefits you can gain if you take a few moments each day and track the repetitive and relatively mundane tasks we do.

Automation is much more than just the mundane and repetitive stuff. The goal of automation is about increasing the flow (and value) of your work. What makes automation successful are five very key features:
