Wow, I haven’t covered one of these in a while. TechTarget has launched another information site for a technology: cloud computing. SearchCloudComputing.com (http://www.searchcloudcomputing.com”>) was made available on June 5.
The site includes information on several aspects of cloud computing (including security, data management, infrastructure, and applications) as well as news. There’s also a webcast and some white papers available.
What I was really looking for was a “What the Heck” document — you know, “What the heck is cloud computing” — which would have given everything else more context. I didn’t find it. What I DID find was an overview of key cloud computing platforms, which did answer a few of my questions.
I think I might start with the overview from Dave Taylor or this presentation from Justin Souter to get my head sufficiently wrapped around cloud computing before I go back to TechTarget.
