Top Cloud Computing Solutions People are Looking For in 2009

A Survey by onCloudComputing.com

This is the summary of Survey conducted by onCloudComputing in which the participants were asked only one simple question “What they are looking for in 2009 in relation to Cloud Computing”. So we can also call the following as “Cloud Computing Trends 2009”

1. Google Cloud Computing
Google has invested heavily in online storage and cloud computing. Google went from a happy consumer of open source to an active contributor to open source on a very big scale. Google already lets people port some of their personal data to the Internet and use its Web-based software.

2. Amazon Cloud Computing
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (also known as "EC2") is a commercial web service that allows customers to rent computers on which to run their own computer applications. EC2 allows scalable deployment of applications by providing a web services interface through which a customer can create virtual machines, i.e. server instances, on which the customer can load any software of their choice.

3. Microsoft Cloud Computing
Microsoft provides products, technologies and offerings around public and private (Azure) clouds, each based on the concepts of being highly virtualized, managed in a consistent manner, dynamic and elastic scalability, and focused on the delivery of services to the user.

4. IBM Cloud Computing
IBM’s provides task-specific cloud computing. The company is set to offer business processes as cloud services, virtual desktop as a service, which would allow businesses to deliver desktops virtually. There are also plans cloud-based services such as business analytics and data storage.

5. Cloud Grid computing
Grid computing has been used in environments where users make few but large allocation requests. Cloud computing really is about lots of small allocation requests.

6. Ubuntu Cloud Computing
Ubuntu provides “Ubuntu Server Edition” for use on a public cloud and for building a own private cloud environment on servers, it offers “Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud”. Ubuntu help organizations to migrate to a cloud environment through Consultancy, Deployment services and Support

7. Cloud Computing Sun
Sun Cloud is an on-demand Cloud computing service operated by Sun Microsystems. The Sun Cloud Compute Utility at Network.com provides access to a substantial computing resource over the Internet. It is based on and supports open source technologies such as Solaris 10, Sun Grid Engine, and the Java platform.

8. VMware Cloud Computing
VMware vCloud cloud solution brings together leading technology from VMware, a huge ecosystem of technology and cloud service providers, and compatibility for all the applications living in the cloud, on or off premise.

9. Cloud Computing Security
Security is one of the biggest concerns of businesses in any form. Is it dangerous to have your spreadsheets on Google’s. Securing the data is key to a cloud service provider's business

10. Free Cloud Computing
“All the best things in world are for Free”. With cloud computing being the new buzz word of the internet, everyone is trying to grab a free demo.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
