Barriers to Cloud Computing Adoption in the Enterprise

Although there are many benefits to adopting cloud computing, there are also some significant barriers to adoption. Two of the most significant barriers to adoption are security and privacy. However, it is important to at least call out what some of the other barriers to adoption are, and we discuss those in the following sections. The other barriers, besides security and privacy, are significant but at the moment we are not going to discuss them.

Security

Because cloud computing represents a new computing model, there is a great deal of uncertainty about how security at all levels (e.g., network, host, application, and […]

Impact of Cloud Computing on Businesses

Individual Businesses

Inspired by the low entry costs for cloud services, technically savvy consumers are now using cloud-based tools to develop their businesses. The expectation is that software should be nearly free of charge and that users should pay only for additional services or some extra capacity. Consumers can host a website to attract customers, use eBay or Craigslist to sell and market individual items, use virtual marketing to spread the word, place ads with search engine providers, engage with online banks to manage funds, supervise online accountancy services to manage finances, and use office assistants to book trips and arrange […]

What is Common Gateway Interface

The Common Gateway Interface, or CGI, is a standard to specify a data format that servers, browsers, and programs must use to exchange information. A program written in any language that uses this standard to transfer data between a Web server and a client’s browser is a CGI script. In other words, a CGI script is an external gateway program to interface with information servers such as HTTP or Web servers and client browsers.

CGI scripts are significant in that they allow the web servers to be dynamic and interactive with the client browser as the server receives and accepts user inputs […]

Data Hoarding

Data hoarding

Hoarding is the process of preloading data into the cache in anticipation of a disconnection, so that the client can continue its operation while disconnected. Hoarding is similar to prefetching used in file and database systems to improve performance. However, there are important differences between hoarding and prefetching. Prefetching is an ongoing process that transfers to the cache soon-to-be-needed files during periods of low network traffic. Since prefetching is continuously performed, in contrast to hoarding, keeping its overhead low is important. Furthermore, hoarding is more critical than prefetching, since, during disconnections, a cache miss cannot be serviced.

Thus, data hoarding […]

What is VMware Cloud

VMware Cloud

The VMware Cloud (also called vCloud) mainly provides PaaS and can be used to create private, public, and hybrid clouds (NIST definition). If you are wondering about the small “v” in front of most VMware products, it stands for VMware, or more recently, just for virtual. It’s similar to the small “i’ in front of Apple products.
The VMware Cloud’s basic core is a product named VMware vCloud Director. It is an interface based on HTTPS (secure HTTP) that abstracts and presents the underlying virtualization for consumption to the end user. Basically, when we talk about the vCloud we are […]

3 Reasons a Blog Is Crucial to Your Nonprofit

Years ago, I worked in journalism, and I used to cringe at the idea of “blogging.”
At the time, I thought blogging was something that Millennials with too much time on their hands did as a method of self-aggrandizement. However, once I stepped into the field of blogging, I found many, if not all, of my misconceptions were wrong.
The field is filled with Millennials with something to say, that’s for sure. But, looking past all the personal rant blogs, I’ve found there’s plenty of useful information out there on a huge range of topics.
Not only that, but once I dipped my […]
