Down-to-Earth Contracts that Keep the Cloud Aloft

Cloud Computing on Ulitzer In this article, we take a look at the basic interoperability requirements when communicating with the Cloud, and in particular at techniques and standards used to express and enforce wire-level contracts between communicating parties, as these parties are increasingly also contracting parties in a Cloud environment. Many standards already developed for Web services and service-oriented architectures provide to the communicating parties a good understanding and control of the expected quality of service at the most basic level of the interaction. Using Web Services in Cloud Computing is not a new idea. Some vendors of Cloud platforms, which provide services necessary to run Cloud applications, supply these as Web services, especially for management functions of the Cloud (on the provider side) and for storage, versioning, upgrades, migrati...

Is IBM XIV Still Relevant?

IBM News on Ulitzer That is a question I get asked quite a bit and based on discussions in other blogs and twitter tweets; it appears that Im not alone. A little over a year ago I did a blog post about IBM and XIV, now seems like a good time to revisit, look back and look forward. Is IBM XIV still relevant? Given the time, money as well as effort IBM has poured into promoting and generating awareness around XIV, it must be relevant to someone. IBM recently released another round of momentum news, customer testimonials and product enhancements while making a point that there are now over 1,000 XIV systems installed around the world. 1,000 systems installed (regardless of if revenue or trial) in the just under 2 years since IBM bought XIV would be a triumph for most startups. However for a major player with the resources of IBM, I would have expected the number of ins... (more)
