In case you missed the Press Release, it is available here as well as below. But I encourage you, especially if you are looking for a Big Data solution, to download the Martini Media case study and then talk with one of our Cloud Solutions Architects. Through the use of our Big Data solution, hosted within the GoGrid cloud, Martini Media has been able to:

  • Support 100 percent annual growth

2012 Cloud Computing Predictions from GoGrid Executives, Customers & Partners (Part 1)

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012 by

As is customary with the passing of an old year and the exciting entrance into a new one, people try to make their best predictions as to what the future holds within their area of expertise. For GoGrid, this is obviously around Cloud Computing. This year, instead of making my own prediction list (as I have done in the past), I thought it would be important to get some other expert voices from the GoGrid and cloud community to do this task.

The important thing to always remember here, especially when dealing with the cloud, is that it changes quickly. It’s similar to buying the latest technology, the moment you buy it (or make the prediction, in this case), it’s instantly outdated. But still, the process is fun if not, educational.

Below is a compilation of 2012 cloud computing predictions from a variety of subject matter experts and thought-leaders in the field of cloud infrastructure, security and services. The contributors are:

  • Warren Heffelfinger (CEO – GoGrid)
  • James Urquhart (Cloud Writer – GigaOm/VP of Product Strategies – enStratus/GoGrid Partner)
  • Larry Warnock (CEO – Gazzang/GoGrid Partner)
  • John Keagy (Chairman & Founder – GoGrid)
  • Carson Sweet (CEO – CloudPassage/GoGrid Partner)
  • Antonio Piraino (CTO – ScienceLogic/GoGrid Customer)

Because of the wealth of knowledge coming from this group, I have actually broken this article out into a series of 2 posts. Without further ado, onto the first set of predictions!
