Virtualization Expo on Ulitzer
Virtualization cuts across just about all that you might find in the today's
data center: to one degree or another, clients, servers, applications,
storage systems, data networks, and security can all now be virtualized. .
By compressing multiple workloads onto a single physical server,
Virtualization enables data centers to save tremendous amounts of money on
hardware, power, cooling and floor space.
For small and midsized enterprises, Virtualization can also help data centers
tap into levels of fault tolerance previously enjoyed only by huge
And chief executives are discovering that Virtualization has the potential
not only to improve the balance sheet, but also to strengthen competitive
advantage and put a shine on the corporate brand.

limitations is... (more)

Recently, Geospatial Intelligence Forum Magazine asked me for my thoughts on
the role of cloud computing in the future of geospatial intelligence.My
response was recently published in their December 2010 print issue and
"In my opinion, Cloud computing is the future of geospatial intelligence.
Through the processing, exploitation and dissemination process, GEOINT links
data about a specific place to a specific time. The goal of this linkage is
to create actionable information, and success is often a matter of having
sufficient information technology resources. While cloud computing is not a
revolution in technology, it does represent a step change in how IT resources
are provisioned, accessed, manipulated and consumed. If leveraged properly,
this new approach will greatly enhance our ability to create actionable

"We spent two years building a cloud offering that is unmatched in the
market. This latest investment represents an investment not only in
ProfitBricks but in the future of cloud," said Achim Weiss, co-founder and
CEO of ProfitBricks, as it was announced that his IaaS company has received a
$19.5 million investment from its founders and United Internet AG, a leading
European internet services provider.

launch wasn't realized," Weiss added.
In 2012 the company established its U.S. headquarters in Cambridge, Mass. and
launched its cloud 2.0 offering, including live vertical scaling and the

network technology to bring high performance computing capabilities to the
cloud and offer a better price-performance ratio than the m... (more)

ParaScale Session at Cloud Expo
In 2009 users were presented with a lot of choice, especially with cloud
computing and cloud storage. Two primary trends were evident including the
arrival of private cloud storage options with increasing choices for
businesses looking to deploy their own storage clouds inside the firewall;
and a rapid proliferation of public cloud storage service options with many
service providers coming to market with varied offerings.

A cloud spot market allows commercial cloud service providers the ability to
announce surplus or idle processing and storage capacity to a cloud exchange.
The exchange allows buyers to locate available cloud processing capacity,
negotiate prices (within milliseconds), and deliver the commodity to
Cloud processing and storage spot markets can be privately operated,
controlled by industry organizations, or potentially government agencies.
Spot markets frequently attract speculators, as cloud capacity prices are
known to the public immediately as transactions occur.
The 2010 cloud spot market allows commercial cloud service providers to
support both franchise (dedicated service level agreement) customers, as well
as on-demand customers to participate in a spot market that allows customers

New-Media on Ulitzer
This year we have seen almost every company, every blogger and his duck,
feverishly posting their "annual predictions" before the December 31
deadline, as if there is such a deadline, and as if anyone cares about what
they think in most cases.
This is followed by a dozen or so 'paid' predictions news
releases every day by companies who are pushing their "wish lists from
2010" as "predictions" and hoping that they come true.
If you do a quick Google search on "2010 predictions" you will land on a
predictions potpourri of more than 5,000 stories (the last time I looked).
I especially enjoyed Fly Fishing Predictions for 2010, Identity Theft 2010
Predictions, The 2010 NFL Mock Draft Predictions, and Plastic Surgery

Security Sessions at Cloud Expo
Botnets, malicious applications and social networking malware are all threats
to look out for in 2010, according to BitDefender. BitDefender, an
award-winning provider of innovative anti-malware security solutions, also
predicts that in 2010 cybercriminals will target operating systems, mobile
devices and enterprise technologies such as cloud computing.
"2009 saw a wide range of security threats aiming at both end-users and at
corporate networks," said Catalin Cosoi, BitDefender's senior anti-spam
researcher. "The Conficker worm took a dramatic surge and managed to stay one
of the top three global threats during 2009. Although not entirely dangerous,
its spreading mechanisms and its resistance to detection may be regarded as
the cornerstone of the upcoming breeds of highly destructive malware."
