Bryson, Good to hear from you. Yes, Google is one of the few companies in a position to drive both the pricing and nature of cloud computing forward in competition with Amazon.

Red Hat understands packaging open source code, umm,  probably better than anyone. It's adopted the Docker approach to Linux containers and will make containers a feature of its OpenShift developer platform as a service. Is that smart? I think it is. It'll provide an alternative way to move workloads to the cloud.

The approach spreads an encryption key around among many users, but Unisys claims that can be done in a secure way. #InformationWeek http://www.informationweek.com/security/cloud-security/unisys-stealth-makes-sensitive-data-go-dark/d/d-id/1204267?piddl_msgid=209371&piddl_msgposted=yes#msg_209371
