The Truth About Cloud Pricing

Within the last decade or so, cloud computing has had to earn its spurs as a viable, secure environment in which to compute and do business. As the cloud has matured and proliferated, its permutations (public, private, hybrid,) have made the simple proposition on which it was predicated for so long (on-premise or off-premise?) substantially less so.

Adam Stern on the Entrepreneur’s Life: Tips from the Road

  • In today’s business world the central role of the customer has been lost. The customer’s role is the most important role. Customers should set the tempo. They should decide what’s most important to them. Businesses should be trying to address those things that pain them most. I believe that’s been lost today.

The Lesson of the GitHub DDoS Attack: Why Your Web Host Matters

Surviving a cyberattack isn’t like weathering a Cat 5 hurricane or coming through a 7.0 earthquake unscathed. Granting that natural disasters too often have horrendous consequences, there’s also a “right place, right time” element to making it through. Cyber-disasters – which can be every bit as calamitous in their own way as acts of nature – don’t typically bend to the element of chance.…

A quick look at cloud terminology

The more IT terms you understand, the more you can help your institution stay safe

Cloud 101 for Real Estate Brokerages: Four Myths in Need of Retirement

Cloud migration involves placing applications (and potentially much more) off-premises and online, shifting the focus from locally-based technology to remote access and deployment.  While some real estate brokerages – local offices and parent firms -- are likely to continue buying hardware, the pace of cloud migration continues to accelerate as more and more applications become cloud-ready. What’s…

Cyber: No Protection Against Complacency

While data is considerably safer these days in the cloud, no cyberinsurance policy can substitute for active vigilance. Cybersecurity insurance appears to be enjoying a heyday. While it’s been around for some time, the perceived need for it has never been greater, as DDoS attacks and major hacks grab headlines and fray nerves. As recently reported in The Hill, Lloyd’s…
