Below are some items from the Founder's Intellectual Property grab bag (as a colleague and close friend of NGE's Founder is fond of saying).
- Separating Clouds from FOG and FUD
Commodity Computing: All you need is a credit card and a plan.
The Cloud Computing meme is a persistent innovation in Data Center Optimization. It is about transparency in Cost, Space and Time, but not in Energy.
- Considering Clouds for Enterprise Use
As the starting point to guide seven Proofs of Concept described in the
NGE activities whitepaper above, the question is “Are Clouds ready for Enterprise prime time?”
Our answer is a qualified “yes” depending on the readiness of the consuming
organization. After all is said and done, Cloud technologies are old wine in new bottles.
This paper extends the "as a Service" concept to include Environment as a Service which provides the Service Level Quality demand side of the equation.
Software, Platform and Infrastructure as a Service are the supply side modalities of delivery.
- Enterprise Policy Development and Support
This is an overview discussion on how to use Security and General Business Policies in a
controllable fashion. This approach underpins Cloud and Enterprise solutions that use the same architecture and tools.
Moving workloads from a private enterprise cloud to a public or hybrid cloud is then totally transparent.
This is the essence of elasticity and fulfilling the promise of the overhyped term "Cloud."
Contained in the paper is a Policy Life Cycle description that guides the requirements on tools for policy management.
