Does cloud infrastructure live up to the hype?
It’s funny when you think about it, cloud infrastructure provides us with the capacity to power and host the most cutting edge computing technology, allowing the latest scientific and technological innovations to go above-and-beyond, but the way in which AWS is managed and how it interfaces with developers and companies is really pretty dated.
As we saw in part one of this series, controlling Cloud costs is a massive problem for companies -but the way to do so isn’t obvious, and in part two we looked at why just “hoping” programmers will respect the budget isn’t realistic.

So Saas is evaporating your hard drives, yip, ours too. Evaporation, aka dematerialization seems to pretty much be the norm these days. Along with the Uber-economy, it’s the usual suspect when it comes to disrupting industries. But concretely, where will the future of cloud computing leave us?
Taking the music industry and its long history of disruption as the example, I tried to imagine the future shape of the enterprise Cloud… What will your tech department look like in years to come (and will you even have one)?
