Description
CohesiveFT sifted through our blog posts from 2006 onward, without any editorial updates (although tempted), in order to present the posts as a reflection of ours and some of our colleagues’ thoughts at the time. Interspersed with each chapter are new, exclusive insights from friends, colleagues, and customers we met along the journey. Each chapter looks back at the short history of cloud computing from the early stages where clouds were far off, through the gathering clouds that turned into fog. Today that fog is shifting, and beginning to rain down the first drops of change.

Summary
Both enterprise and consumer cloud adoption will lead the market into new realms. From the “cloud to the ground,” each chapter of our ebook looks back at the short history of cloud computing from the early stages of far off clouds, through the gathering clouds that turned into fog. Today that fog is shifting, and beginning to rain down the first drops of change. We sifted through our blog posts from 2006 onward to present a reflection of our thoughts at the time. Interspersed with each chapter are new, exclusive insights from friends, colleagues, and customers we met along the journey. And big thanks to our contributors: Fred Hoch, Edmund Sutcliffe, Krishnan Subramanian, James Elwood, Chad Lawler, and Patricia Seybold. Thank you to those who gladly let us reuse their works from over the years: Jeff Barr, Eric Knorr, James Governor, Chris Purrington, Chris Hoff, and Chris Swan.

Excerpt
Exclusive Viewpoint: Cloud Still Has a Long Way to Come Chad Lawler Director, Consulting Services, Cloud Computing at Hitachi Consulting It’s very interesting to look ahead and try to anticipate where the puck is going. The truth is that what Werner Vogels has stated about where we are in the “maturity curve” is absolutely true – that even with the progress we’ve made, we are very early in the cloud evolution. We want instant gratification with a solution that fits all of our needs, but we’re not there yet. We’re certainly not at the point where true utility computing is a reality. Here is an example: most cloud vendors say they offer pay-per-use functionality, when really they’re offering pay-per-allocation. You allocate a small, medium, large, or extra-large compute size, server memory, and a certain amount of storage. You pay for what you allocate, not what you use. When you allocate 10TB of storage on AWS S3 and do not use all of it, you still pay for the 10TB allocated. In order to have scalable storage you still have to pay to allocate it. The idea of utility computing is still very relevant, interesting, and appealing to businesses, particularly when you get into the potential for dynamic, hybrid cloud. With hybrid cloud, you can get to daydreaming about moving workloads on the fly to the cheapest or fastest cloud. The truth is, that just isn’t a reality today. It’s coming, however, as you can see with recent releases by leading cloud providers that enable basic hybrid functionality. However, the standards are not there yet and clouds are proprietary. It is very complex to move a traditional application from your data center to a public cloud and back without detailed knowledge of the application. Plus, there are still many integration, performance, data consistency, and security concerns, and not every application is a fit for the cloud, at least today. Cloud will continue to evolve toward a hybrid, utility-compute cloud model, but it is going to take a long time; I would guess 7 to 10 or so. Entrenched technology vendors don’t want to erode their existing revenues by creating competitive cloud offerings, so they resist change and cloudwash as a result. This is very confusing for business and customers. Many other technology vendors are digging in their heels and developing very compelling private cloud offerings to retain customer control. All of these complex trends are creating a “push and pull” scenario between the true utility computing we want in the long-term and the status quo of where we are today.
