InformationWeek’s “IaaS Buyer’s Guide” with some Updated Information from GoGrid

Friday, October 19th, 2012 by

This week, InformationWeek published an extremely handy IaaS Buyer’s Guide designed to help companies navigate the complex airspace of cloud computing, specifically the Infrastructure-as-a-Service marketplace. The Guide covers 9 IaaS providers, including GoGrid, that each submitted responses to a questionnaire about their service offerings. InformationWeek then compiled and categorized those responses in this easy-to-understand Guide. You can find the full Guide (behind a registration wall) here.

Topics covered in the Guide include:

  • Storage

Helpful listing of Cloud Computing blogs

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008 by

The High Scalability blog today posted a great list of various Cloud Computing blogs currently available. If you are looking for a single source of Cloud Computing information, I definitely recommend looking at Todd Huff’s solid list.

The post is located here.

His post is broken down into specific Categories: Meta Sources and Specific Blogs. I’m sure that these will grow over time. Currently there are 5 Meta Source listings (obvious ones there include the Google Groups on Cloud Computing) and a good group of Specific blogs. Some of the Specific Blog highlights that I think are important ones to look at are:

The GoGrid blog was included in the list (Thanks Todd).

I would like to add a few more that I personally read that others may find as useful resources:
