    What Does Cloud Computing Offer? - Cloud Computing=IT Revolution?

    (Page 3 of 4 )


    According to Bernard Golden of CIO, powerful new technologies and concepts such as cloud computing are often completely embraced or shunned, and the reaction greatly depends on the capabilities of the entity. In other words, if a company knows how to use cloud computing to their benefit, they will fully embrace it and happily proclaim it’s the wave of the future. However, if an individual is losing business or revenue as a result of cloud computing, they will resist it and attempt to sway others to do the same.

    According to Golden, “When it comes to cloud computing, we should expect to see the same dynamic play out. Over the next two to five years, expect to see enormous conflict about the technical pros and cons of cloud computing that will, at bottom, be motivated by the perception on the part of the participants as to whether cloud computing represents a benefit to be embraced or a threat to be resisted.”

    Golden believes that cloud computing has three major characteristics: the illusion of infinite scalability, a lack of a long-term commitment, and pay-by-the-use. The technology expert believes that these three characteristics will eventually result in three revolutions in the way IT is performed, though we’ll only discuss the first, most major one here.

    The first revolution -- and the most important one -- will be a change in IT operations, which may slowly morph until it resembles Amazon’s modern day web services. That is to say, users will be able to fill out a web page, click a button, and within a few minutes have computing resources available to them.

    Eventually, cloud computing will make it so that users can obtain large amounts of computing resources with a single request and later, if more resources are needed, they can be easily requested and added to the existing resources. According to Golden, this will revolutionize IT because of the current provisioning cycle, which today often results in large gaps between request and resource availability.
