To InfiniBand and Beyond!

Explosive Internet growth, beginning in the mid-late 1990′s, has had a dramatic affect on the evolution of computer networking.

This great infographic presents a timeline illustrating the respective history and advantages of Ethernet and InfiniBand - the two leading networking technologies - as well as some specific use cases and performance testing results.

To InfiniBand and Beyond! Explosive Internet growth, beginning in the mid-late 1990′s, has had a dramatic affect on the evolution of computer networking. Some new network technologies and initiatives boomed, but faded rapidly into oblivion. Others, notably Ethernet, invented by Bob Metcalfe at Xerox PARC, became the standard and a commodity.  While new technologies emerged in the 2000′s to solve …

What Cloud or Big Data events are you attending this year?  He is a list we made: 
In the technology landscape, attending conferences and events isn’t a luxury — it’s a must. These events are typically held in major cities with technology and innovation hubs like Silicon Valley or Boston or a “neutral” city with great convention center spaces.  These events are packed with some of the world’s brightest minds in the hottest industries, including cloud computing, …

What do you think? Is it time to simplify #cloud #IaaS  pricing? Is the cloud really "cloud" with "usage based billing" and a "utility like availability"  if billing is not by the minute, instances must be selected from pre-sized sizes, and the best discounts require up-front payments and a long-term commitment?  I don't think so. #awssummit14   #AWSsummit  
 
ProfitBricks ProfitBricks CMO and co-founder Andreas Gauger has a new blog post today that shares some insight into how cloud providers like ProfitBricks and Amazon price and package their products. ProfitBricks is the price/performance leader in the cloud we want to make sure that cloud buyers understand how pricing and packaging can have a big effect on your monthly Cloud Computing bill. We would love to hear about your cloud costs and what you look for when you are buying IaaS services.

The Cloud Computing IaaS space continues to evolve - read what our founder has to say about Google's cloud pricing announcement that was made yesterday. #GCPLive 
 
The IaaS space is attracting a lot of attention this week.  Google has made a move to get some attention for their cloud offerings by lowering their pricing for both their on-demand and an automated - but complicated discount scheme.  

Read this blog post by our co-founder that explains the state of pricing in the IaaS space: http://blog.profitbricks.com/googles-cloud-pricing-announcement-young-cloud-iaas-marketplace/

What do you think? Is it all about price? Or does performance and ease of use a factor in your consideration as well?  We think it's all important and that is why our only focus is IaaS and being the price/performance leader.
