Lets start at the beginning and talk about how Enterprises want to pay for cloud. While individuals/developers/2.0’s are more than happy to swipe a credit card and buy virtual machines, this doesn’t help your average Enterprise CFO. They require more documentation, control, and accountability for using the company’s financial resources. It would be very interesting to see a public company go through its SOX review and discuss how its infrastructure maps to this line item on the IT Managers credit card. Who gets the points? :-)

Over the past couple of months we have seen tremendous interest in using cloud for disaster recovery solutions. Some of this has been fueled by CIO’s looking for a more cost-effective method of DR from traditional cold/warm/hot sites and others from cloud customers who have been impacted by some of the outages of late at Rackspace and Amazon.

What is it they say about time flying when your having fun? I was just reminded that it’s been 3 months since my last blog post. Feels like a New Years’ resolution coming my way!! Looking back on 2009, it’s hard to believe all that we were able to achieve with our service, and more importantly, what we have been able to deliver to our customers.
