Very cool stats - more love for New Relic
With Docker monitoring on New Relic, we now have some real data on key adoption and usage questions.

Cloud Spending will increase by 42% in 2015 - how does your IT budget compare?  Are there BI or Big Data projects planned, or more people and process projects?...let us know we like to hear of how the cloud is transforming IT.

ProfitBricks is on the cover of Processor Magazine!  Second generation cloud is making waves in the Data Center community.
 
Processor magazine did a cover story on ProfitBricks and how our second generation #cloud  computing platform is bringing a second wave of companies onto the cloud. Ease of use, price/performance leadership and other innovations are recognized drivers of our growth.

Complicated Pricing. Requirements unfriendly packaging. How did this become the norm in Cloud Computing's IaaS market?  Cloud Computing and the age of the empowered and enlightened IT technology buyer were supposed to put an end to the Enterprise approach of the past. But Amazon #AWS  , Microsoft and Google are trying to manipulate us and protect their interests as the IaaS market becomes a commodity.  Read the post below by +Andreas Gauger the co-founder of +ProfitBricks US and see how the "unbound cloud" might be the Cloud pricing and packaging approach we all wanted the Cloud to have.
 
Is Cloud Computing pricing and packaging becoming so complicated that it's like the old enterprise approach used by Oracle/Microsoft/CA/IBM etc.?  Or was Cloud Computing supposed to usher in flexibility and simple pricing and billing for IT infrastructure?  You decide, first, read this post by our co-founder Andreas Gauger.
Cloud Computing is under attack by the enterprise approach of the past. Buyer friendly Cloud computing pricing and packaging is at risk.

We lowered our pricing by 30% this week and the industry is reacting.  Our co-founder, Andreas Gauger was quoted as saying: "Customers should have fundamental control and flexibility over their cloud experience, and not have to worry about being gouged on price," said Andreas Gauger, co-founder of ProfitBricks, in a prepared statement. "With our approach, customers can tailor their service to meet their exact requirements, and avoid over- or under-buying of cloud infrastructure. It's an 'unbound' philosophy that we feel delivers on the true promise the cloud was intended to be. We kicked off the current price war with a 50 percent drop in July 2013 and we are now seeing the largest players in the industry resort to the old, tired pricing, packaging and lock-in schemes of yesterday's enterprise IT. Read the post on Talkin' Cloud and let us know what you think.
ProfitBricks is taking the next step in the cloud computing price wars by cutting its infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) pricing. The company is throwing down the gauntlet and claiming leadership in the realm of IaaS pricing.
