Cloud, here we come!
Cloud, here we come!  Or is it rather more a case of "We're already here, so make the best of it..."? I spent some time today talking to a good friend of mine who also happens to be the head of security for a large European financial services business. Unsurprisingly we got on to the ...

The Cloud is Also Green
Yes, not only gray :-) Seriously, we commissioned a study to see what the impact of cloud computing is not only to efficiency but the the environment. Can you save CO2 by moving to the cloud?
