Cloudbursting: The Killer App For The Cloud? By InMage
The advent of cloud computing promises to change the face of the information technology (IT) industry
forever. Just like electricity evolved from on-site generation to provision by large utilities on a pay-asyou-
use basis, IT is rapidly evolving from an in-house function to one that is provided as a service from
the "cloud." Although it uses some of the same premises that time-sharing did in the 1960s and 1970s,
a number of key technologies are coming together now that make cloud computing a "when" not "if"
question as it becomes a multi-billion dollar business.
The recent implosion of the Real Estate and Financial markets has been quite a harsh wake-up call for everyone. No one understands the resulting pinch better than CFO's & CIO's that are forced to "do more with less" in order for their companies to survive. Interestingly enough, the wake-up call has coincided with the emergence of "Cloud Computing" as viable and cost-effective IT solution.
