  • Our third meeting was a success! - Super Mondays
    their excellent facilities Posted November 25th 2008 in Uncategorized 4 comments Comments Mike Parker says November 25 2008 at 10 30 am Glad to hear last night was so well attended and that the slides are up for review I ll have a read on my phone whilst waiting to go into a meetingin London the reason I couldn t attend last night Richard Hyett says November 25 2008 at 4 16 pm I m sorry I missed the event I was in Birmingham The thing I still don t understand about Cloud computing is Nonetheless significant operational efficiency and agility advantages can be realised even by small organisations wikipedia cloud computing Perhaps small organisations do make files available for 35 000 users but what about really small organisations with web sites and relatively small audiences admin says November 25 2008 at 4 30 pm To me Cloud Computing is all about scalability I cant generalise for all cloud computing providers but in my experience with AWS I have found that it suits people who cant predict their usage or perhaps need more capacity than they can handle with their existing resources In the first case perhaps you are setting up a website and you dont know if 10 or 10m will visit it This is a perfect case for cloud computing In the second case perhaps you have a website and you expect a large increase in usage for a short period In the case of the example I gave last night perhaps you need to make a large file available for a short period This is a perfect case for cloud computing If you have a low usage web site then you do not need scalability and in that case a simple hosting account with a ISP is
