    AT&T signs $2 billion cloud deal with Microsoft

    A person with knowledge of the contract pegged the combined deal at a tidy $2 billion, a nice feather in Microsoft’s cloud cap. According to a Microsoft blog post announcing the deal, AT&T has a goal to move most of its non-networking workloads to the public cloud by 2024, and Microsoft just got itself a big slice of that pie, surely one that rivals AWS, Google and IBM (which closed the $34 billion Red Hat deal last week) would dearly have loved to get.

    Apple sued for not disclosing that ‘iCloud storage’ relies on third-party cloud services

    Two iCloud users have filed a complaint, charging they paid the “Apple premium” for cloud storage under the presumption that Apple would store their data on its own servers.

    Connect or replace your local server with the cloud

    The options to make files available online and on the work-floor are springing up like mushrooms. SaaS, Hybrid Cloud or On-Premise, are terms you can quickly find after searching for ‘cloud’ online.

  8. Tomi Engdahl says:

    And nowadays Apple is allegedly reselling Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform services under its iCloud brand

    The competitive landscape is heating up. As Google Cloud aggressively approaches enterprises to get a foot in the door, Microsoft is going to great lengths to keep them out.

    Pentagon awards controversial $10 billion cloud computing contract to Microsoft in Amazon snub

    (CNN) – Microsoft has won a hotly contested contract to provide cloud computing services to the Defense Department, besting Amazon in a months-long competition

    In a statement, Amazon said it is surprised at the decision.

    How do you get the benefits of the cloud in your own data centre? Microsoft has been pondering this question for some time, coming up with a range of different solutions. At one end of the scale is the ‘Azure-consistent’ hardware portfolio, which starts with the rack-based Azure Stack Hub and scales down to IoT and edge compute-focused Azure Stack Edge hardware. But they all need you to invest in new, specialised hardware. What do you do when you want to use your own existing infrastructure?

    AWS Outposts begins to take shape to bring the cloud into the data center

    When AWS announced Outposts last year, a private cloud hardware stack they install in your data center, there were a lot of unanswered questions. This week at AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, the company announced general availability as the vision for this approach began to become clearer.

    “We tried to rethink this with a different approach,” he said. “We thought about it more as trying to distribute AWS on premises. With Outposts, you have racks of AWS servers that have compute, storage, database and analytics and machine learning on them. You get to decide what composition you want and we deliver that to you,” he said.

    The hardware is equipped with a slew of services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, Amazon ECS, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service and Amazon EMR. Conspicuously missing is S3 storage, but Amazon promises that will be coming in 2020 with other services on deck, as well.

    The Information:
    Sources: early last year, Alphabet and Google’s leadership set a timeline for its cloud group to best its rivals by 2023, and considered leaving the market — Google’s cloud unit, which sells computing services to big companies, is under pressure from top management to pass Microsoft or Amazon …

    Google Brass Set 2023 as Deadline to Beat Amazon, Microsoft in Cloud

    The clock is ticking for Google Cloud.

    The Google unit, which sells computing services to big companies, is under pressure from top management to pass Amazon or Microsoft—currently first and second, respectively, in cloud market share—or risk losing funding. While the company has invested heavily in the business since last year, Google wants its cloud group to outrank those of one or both of its two main rivals by 2023, said people with knowledge of the matter.

    That timeline was devised early last year, after an intense monthslong debate among senior leaders at Google and its parent company Alphabet over the future of the cloud business, a person with direct knowledge of the matter told The Information.

    Solita Cloud tests – How migration tools perform?

    Public Cloud providers (AWS, Azure and GCP) have been acquiring migration-tools to provide fast ways to migrate workloads to the public cloud. As we have not found any study of tools and hands-on-experience reports so we decided to do it with our skilled cloud team

    Startup Lowers the Cost of Cloud Services by Harnessing Idle Computers

    For many small businesses, cloud-based products such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure are too expensive. They are looking for affordable alternatives that still provide a variety of features.

    The founders of Nakamoto & Turing Labs say their company has developed a product for them. The startup’s Pekka cloud-computing platform uses blockchain technology to connect customers who want compute-intensive services with people around the world who want to rent them their idle computer.

  23. Tomi Engdahl says:

    Revenue from cloud computing was expected to exceed $200 billion this year. It has been growing annually by about 16 percent, Yang says.

    Roughly $25 billion of that revenue is generated by individuals and small business.

    Microsoft Is Winning The ‘Cloud War’ Against Amazon: Report

    Microsoft is now the most popular cloud services supplier and is steadily gaining market share against major competitors like Amazon, according to a new survey from Goldman Sachs about the current state of a trend that is reshaping the technology industry.

  25. Tomi Engdahl says:

    While the complexity of the move will always dictate the timeline of cloud migration to some degree, concerns over security and systemic problems can lead to questions and setbacks.

    Why Faster Is Possible In Cloud Migration

    DigitalOcean is laying off staff, sources say 30-50 affected

    After appointing a new CEO and CFO last summer, cloud infrastructure provider DigitalOcean is embarking on a wider reorganisation: the startup has announced a round of layoffs, with potentially between 30 and 50 people affected.

    And in an area of business where economies of scale are essential for making good margins on a business, it competes against some of the biggest leviathans in tech: Google (and its Google Cloud Platform), Amazon (which as AWS) and Microsoft (with Azure). That could mean that DigitalOcean is either trimming down as it talks investors for a new round; or to better conserve cash as it sizes up how best to compete against these bigger, deep-pocketed players; or perhaps to start thinking about another kind of exit.

  27. Tomi Engdahl says:

    Google Cloud makes strides but still has a long way to go

    In earnings reported this week, Alphabet announced that Google Cloud generated a robust $2.61 billion for the quarter, a number that includes revenue from both Google Cloud Platform and G Suite.

    That puts the division on a nice little run rate of $10.44 billion. It feels like a lot until you consider that Microsoft had a combined software and infrastructure cloud revenue run rate of $12.5 billion in its most recent report, while AWS reported almost $10 billion for the quarter.

    Cloud market trends in 2020:
    Organization cost reduction
    Facilitation of unit interactions
    shorter data analysis times;
    release of resources for strategic tasks;
    Decrease in terms of decision making.
    Improving the efficiency of warehouse enterprises

    Well, from my own experience, I can say that many companies are actually migrating their existing (local) systems or software to the cloud. Also, many companies that develop different systems or software initially host their systems on the cloud, for example, PMS software by BookingNinjas – I believe there are a few main reasons for migrating systems to the cloud. 1. This is a simplification of the administration process. It’s much easier to administer such a system and you can do it remotely. 2. You don’t need to use your own servers, which reduces costs for the company.
