Who’s Who in Cloud April 12, 2013

Key players discussed healthcare cloud, OpenStack, federal cloud plans, and much more this week. 

Who's Who

We round up the week in cloud computing.

Mark Eisenberg asks: “What’s wrong with the Gartner Hype Cycle for Cloud Computing, 2012?”

In other Gartner news, the firm released a new survey that shows “CEOs by a four-to-one ratio plan to boost IT spending in 2013,” as Larry Dignan reports.

Rodney Brown examines “convergence in the cloud’s upper crust” this week, outlining recent news from Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.

Ars Technica’s Sean Gallagher reports on a new study from the Center for Energy-Efficient Telecommunications (AT&T’s Bell Labs and the University of Melbourne in Australia), which shows that “the energy consumption of wireless access dominates data center consumption by a significant margin.”

Piston CTO Josh McKenty tells IT World’s Nancy Gohring that he predicts a mass migration from AWS. (We’re not sold on that. Blog post to come.)

Over at Network World, Brandon Butler charts the evolution of OpenStack.

Elsewhere at Network World, Christine Burns: “Cloud tools abound. Is enterprise IT ready?”

In a contributor post at Forbes, Cesar Orosco attempts to quell “any lingering doubts about the increasing role and presence of cloud computing in the enterprise.”

Over at Cloud Tweaks, Dan Stelter outlines how cloud can be a boon for small businesses.

Dublin’s cool climate is attracting cloud computing giants to build data centers there, Rich Miller reports at Data Center Knowledge.

“US Navy issues new cloud computing policy,” Reuven Cohen reports, quoting from the  Department of the Navy Chief Information Officer memo announcing the move to cloud.

Similarly, “in a bid to improve its IT operations, the Department of Homeland Security has adopted agile development and is turning to cloud platforms,” reports Patrick Thibodeau.

The Web Host Industry Review’s Nicole Henderson recently spoke with our own Jason Deck about Logicworks Healthcare Cloud. This week, Henderson charts the challenges and resistance to cloud adoption in the industry.

Over at Health Data Management, David Linthicum makes the case that healthcare data is secure in the cloud. “The use of cloud-based platforms to store health care data is something that seems unnatural for most of those who run IT shops in the health care vertical. However, the emerging data seems to pushback on this notion, albeit most health care organizations should approach cloud computing with a clear security plan,” Linthicum says. “If they do that, all will be well with placing data in the cloud.”

Quentin Hardy profiles Practice Fusion, “a medical service using the cloud.”

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
