A different perspective of Cloud Computing from Larry Ellison

This video offers a different perspective on Cloud Computing. I agree with Larry that the Cloud is a bunch of networked computers which offer services or applications to the users (which is not new). However, I think the way businesses will use the Cloud in the future is what makes it new and different. The ability for businesses to leverage economies of scale and use IT resources and talent from the Cloud, I believe will allow companies to focus on their core competencies and save costs by not having to support a large IT budget and infrastructure. So watch the video and let me know what you think. Thanks!

Online collaboration: LotusLive

Again the title is the link. This is a link to the actual site where you can purchase LotusLive. What I find interesting is they are molding email, online meetings and document collaboration all into one package. Google Wave is still in Beta and it is suppose to do just about the same thing. I wonder will the paid service or free win out? Are businesses ready to embrace the cloud? Will they switch from their current email client to a hosted service? I am going to explore a little deeper into this LotusLive and then compare it to Google Wave and others that are beginning to offer similar services. Stay tuned in for updates very soon. Also, check out the original article from eweek at

IBM's LotusLive

This is a very interesting article. It provides some insight into the services companies are beginning to offer via the cloud. The title above is a link to the story.
