TweetCloud computing continues to gain more mainstream adoption as more companies move into the cloud.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is what most IT professionals think about when they talk about the cloud.
Forrester, an analyst firm predicts it will generate greater revenue potential which can clearly be seen from Amazon Web Services, the undisputed commodity IaaS revenue leader. Rackspace, the second largest commodity IaaS provider also reveals an increase in its revenue. Both AWS and Rackspace’s rapid revenue growth can be credited from the growing usage of the IaaS. Large organizations rely on commodity IaaS for testing and developing new applications, and for hosting applications that are less-critical, while small businesses use it for mission-critical applications. Providing on-demand access to computing and storage resources is the main focus of Enterprise IaaS clouds. Even though adoption rates and market size can be hard to distinguish at Enterprise IaaS, it is still doing fine among its target audience. On top of the core enterprise IaaS platform, the entrance of IBM into the enterprise IaaS adds diverse services. For enterprise IaaS providers, one challenge would be to harden their clouds for enterprise applications. The huge financial investment that Paas gained in the past years proved that is continues to gain popularity. Microsoft’s Windows Azure platform is at the center of its cloud efforts that has attracted a number of customers.
On the first half of 2011, PaaS providers address the concern about lack of control and lack of choice. Some reported that SaaS has inspired Everything as a Service, where any IT process or application or business function is available as a service.
Aside from the endless emergence of new applications, SaaS will focus on integration of data and services. Most survey results reveal that users of multiple SaaS applications plan to increase their usage over time; which is both a challenge and an opportunity for data-integration vendors.
As SaaS use grows, data virtualization can pick up its momentum by incorporating data from mobile devices and other end-user derived sources. Cloud storage is defined as the independent storage services in the cloud and is the most widely deployed cloud services.  It is currently being used to backup data, although it also serves as primary file- or content-storage options for web applications, like for Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3). Cloud storage is risk-free as data is already stored elsewhere without the need to be accessed by production applications. The innovation on cloud storage will focus on primary storage for enterprise applications in the cloud. However, companies deciding for primary cloud storage must innovate on data-transport front. Private cloud is considered as the delivery model choice of large enterprises and other risk-averse businesses. It has been noted that there are 2 interesting trends taking place – the advent of PaaS software designed to run on private clouds, and the OpenStack. Private clouds are here to stay whether as a whole or part of a hybrid cloud environment.  For private cloud vendors, choosing to rely on their partners or building their own features will be a big decision. Two major trends can be expected in the coming years – advanced hybrid cloud capabilities, and a wave of innovation around higher-level features and specialized functions. In 2012, more than 1.7 million jobs in the field of cloud computing remained unoccupied, according to analysts firm IDC.
Cloud marketing has the ability to drastically change the ways in which they reach and engage their audience, particularly with regard to distributing and storing mission-critical data. More and more companies encourage their employees to work on their devices, thus reducing the cost of computer equipment, but also increase the cost to maintain licenses and safety. Despite the inclination to wait until all of the cloud’s kinks have been worked out, holding off on cloud initiatives until the industry matures won’t guarantee success.
The software industry is undergoing major changes by trends such as cloud, SaaS, mobile technology and the “consumerization of IT”. My personal website is built using WordPress; every day they email me a backup file of my complete database.
All  this has been debated for years in the IT community, but once again the health IT world seems to be naive.
Okay, you guys, so I get that the reality may not be nearly as professional, responsible & reliable as I imagined.
Any AWS client could have avoided the downtime (and some I know did) by buying redundant services from more than a single location. Cloud services properly implemented are the safest way to both retain online availability and have your data saved. I believe you make a mistake by comparing the potential availability of health data in the cloud to a theoretical optimal availability.
The big difference with vendors like amazon is, that outages become more visible whereas many small outages in on premise software that is not properly maintained or just lost paper documents never receive the same attention. That said – I also maintain a printed folder with the most important medical documents.
As an example, see our post last year about a system a hospital purchased, unhapppily, calling it the cream of the crap.
It kinda grosses me out that perhaps this post’s title should have been more generic. Gilles said above, and others said on Facebook, there ARE cloud services that include enough redundancy to be sufficiently reliable (whatever that means). But I know from the newspaper industry, where I once worked (as a vendor), it IS possible to be dagnabbed near bulletproof, at some price. Correction: I said AWS IS completely reliable if your methodology includes redundancy INTRA AWS, ie setting up redundant systems on more than 1 AWS node. Dave, I think your real point here might better be that PHR services, if an when they’re truly available and usable by patients and physicians. John (at Chilmark), do papers or posts or surveys exist that document the proven update or failure rates of different systems, and total cost of ownership for a given service level? This, to me, is the strongest possible argument against putting everything you own in the cloud. Perhaps what needs to happen is for all patients to need to think about these things, and for true ePatients to know what reliable disaster recovery means for their medical data, and follow through. Yes, but for #1 only, which unfortunately is in the headline, and coming from a respected source.

As to you previous question, on reliability of cloud services, like anything in life it all depends on much you want to spend. I have reams of financial information downloaded from an on-line accounting system that I quit using. My underlying thought was that for any case where wwe MUST have access to the data and functionality, cloud-only is insufficient, because an outage leaves us with no way to help ourselves. And I’ve come to terms with the realization that in the case of a multi-day power outage or internet outage I could have no access at all- cloud or not. We must always remember that the weakest link is where a system may fail, In most cases, good Cloud system is far better then a in-house supported system. I’m wondering if SPM should create a commit to dictate minimal acceptable IT standards to HIMSS!
This is super informative, I realize to have backups of all my files which I decided to save online.
The moment I first heard of cloud computing, either for data storage or for running apps, these were exactly my concerns.
I still need to figure out ways to back some of this stuff up that only seems to live online, though – but I for darn sure have not switched to things like email only bank statements.
Wendy, my thinking on this has evolved a bit in the near-year since those events and this post.
Having a offsite backup system is a great idea however you can also replicate your data over multiple Clouds.
When setting up a EHR for instance, select two different carriers for the fiber to the hosting site. Participatory Medicine is a model of cooperative health care that seeks to achieve active involvement by patients, professionals, caregivers, and others across the continuum of care on all issues related to an individual's health. The summer is now in full swing and Hollywood has launched several blockbuster movies that have superhero themes. I was recently reflecting on the fact that in today's challenging business climate the superhero theme is played out often. As a solution provider who assists companies to create, distribute and manage documents more efficiently, we dedicate the majority of our efforts to help customers battle the paper villian (the time, money and resources wasted around the handling of documents.) In my over 15 years of consulting with organizations I find that there is no better feeling than helping customers play the role of the Superhero.
I thought I would share with you one of the recent experiences I had with helping a customer become Superhero and tackle their villain.
IBM recently announced that they have withdrawn the Domino Fax for i solution from the market and will no longer be providing support for the solution after April 2012. Roto Rooter was one such company that approached us to help them tackle this challenge (aka villain).
10 Powerful Facts About Big DataBig data means many things to many people, but how broad is its impact? Whether savior or scam -- or maybe even a mixture of the two -- big data remains a popular topic among pundits, prognosticators, marketers, and security buffs. But the challenges of managing massive volumes of varied data sets arriving at high velocities -- the classic 3V's definition -- are changing as the number of data-sharing devices grows exponentially. Organizations see a potential boon in actionable insights derived from big data, not only to sell more widgets and services, but also to better manage healthcare, stop the flow of counterfeit drugs, track terrorists, and maybe even track your phone calls. The irony of big data is that despite its potential to enhance the human experience, it's often difficult to collect, filter, analyze, and interpret to gain those cherished insights. Cunitz may have prematurely predicted the demise of "big data," but he's spot on: It's all just data. Jeff Bertolucci is a technology journalist in Los Angeles who writes mostly for Kiplinger's Personal Finance, The Saturday Evening Post, and InformationWeek. In this article we will understand the role of Cloud Computing in Big Data StoryWhat is Cloud?Cloud is the biggest buzzword around from last few years.

IaaS is also referred as Cloud Infrastructure service and is considered as the core of cloud computing. Investment bank, UBS reported that AWS earning statement could jump from $550 million in 2010 to $750 million in 2011. Despite this reported growth, some are still reluctant to consider commodity IaaS for mission-critical applications in the cloud.
One difference between the two is the difficulty to distinguish enterprise IaaS adoption rates and market size from those of commodity IaaS. This includes tools to enable dynamic application development to advanced analytics services. In order to attract more enterprise developers, they have to loosen access to their platforms. Everyone needs a service that promises to fundamentally alter the way applications are developed, deployed and managed.  Still, it remains to be dependent on individual developers, web startups and enterprise developers. This integration could prove to be a valuable offering that will address the growing number of cloud services. It uses a virtual gateway to route files securely and reliably to cloud storage infrastructure from a number of providers.
As vendors such as HP and Dell have storage businesses and public clouds, they could benefit from leveraging their storage expertise to make primary cloud storage a reality. It won’t be attractive for customers if they rely only on the public Internet for uploading and downloading primary data.
GigaOM survey reveals 63 percent of respondents utilize private clouds or hybrid clouds as the focus of their cloud strategies. Well, a lot of people talk about cloud-based personal health records (PHR), and cloud-based medical tools.
Every week they emailed us a link to download a zip file of our entire database, plus a daily update. Non-cloud computer downtime is already a major, major problem in hospitals, in addition to incompetent installations which I am sure have killed patients. This will only slow down the adoption of systems that can bring a real benefit compared to *the reality* of todays systems.
Companies that designed their AWS implementation for this kind of failure remained online during the AWS US-East breakdown.
I confess I’m amazed at the news that in-house systems (even at big medical centers, apparently) are often poorly managed. What can you say about how MS achieves the “never fail” availability you describe? If your data matters, you need a hybrid strategy, with local storage and local content creation and editing tools.

Then that is always a good way to get a lot of readers and comments, even if the statement is completely irrational. Once an author gives the okay, they go around harvesting what they want later, sometimes editing the text(!) or headlines, and not responding to authors’ repeated requests. I suppose I could reconstruct the data into spreadsheets, if I took the hours necessary to figure it out. Again, I do use cloud for almost everything- the wide access from many devices is useful and enabling, and I’ve lost FAR more data from un-backed-up non-cloud storage. ICUs are, hospitals in general are, but not most of a doctor’s office, and certainly not a PHR. Do you have a link to an article that illustrates how people are doing things the way you suggest?
Participatory medicine is an ethical approach to care that also holds promise to improve outcomes, reduce medical errors, increase patient satisfaction and improve the cost of care. Each and every day businesses are challenged with battling villains to just simply survive. The Domino Fax for i solution provided companies with the ability to automate the process of sending and receiving faxes through their Lotus Notes mail platform. Roto Rooter had an aggressive timeline to replace the Domino Fax for i solution since they were in the process of upgrading their Domino server and wanted to go live with the replacement solution at the same time. It's many things to many people: a boon to scientists and retailers, but also an enabling technology for a host of privacy and security threats.
This hardware, collectively known as the Internet of Things (IoT), includes machine sensors and consumer-oriented devices such as connected thermostats, light bulbs, refrigerators, and wearable health monitors.
IW posted a good article about how John Deere is using IoT to benefit themselves and their customers.
From the business perspective, Forrester's recent advice has been to build the business case first, before deploying the technology.
Leave new Susan Bilder October 29, 2013 12:57 amWe all understand the future is going towards cloud computing and using other companies to host their data and applications. This year, AWS reveals that its S3 storage service hosts doubled as it now hosts more than 262 billion objects.
A recent survey showed that 52 percent responded that security concerns are holding them back from using the cloud.
Survey respondents cited the need for more insights from operational data and more control.
Enterprise IaaS clouds don’t need to attract a number of users as they are dealing mostly with revenues from larger deals. As part of IBM’s SmartCloud offering, it has promised Hadoop processing service in addition to its existing WebSphere and Cognos services. It displays the uptime, performance degradation and outages of every system around the world.
For anything mission-critical you have to consider whether you could afford to be offline for hours or days, and think out what you’d do meanwhile. Within the Amazon cloud, you can make your infrastructure geographically disperse thus greatly reducing outage risk (at an increased cost of course). Really doesn’t matter whether it is up in the cloud or on the local desktop or back office server, they are all vulnerable.
If that company fails to have redundant data strategies, as Amazon did, then that’s problem #2.
Dave Winer (and others) are attempting to address this issue, but the critical mass don’t seem to be listening. Most of us that have been around a while are very familiar with the general theme of a superhero movie.
Whether the villain is a new or existing competitor, unrealistic customer demands, new industry or federal regulations or just simple inefficiencies in your current business processes. As a result of this announcement we have been approached by several users since we are the endorsed replacement solution by IBM. We reacted quickly to provide them with our drop-in replacement solution called FastFax for Domino. Big data and all the predictions for this space will collapse into 'data management' by the analysts and all those following, including a lot of the 'big' vendors," wrote Hortonworks president Herb Cunitz in a December 2012 blog.
Cloud users and providers cited “analytics” and “automation” as a service they’d like to have.
Through this, organizations won’t commit entirely to public cloud resources and private cloud resources as they can use either model.
Typically there is a villain who gets the best of the good guys several times before the Superhero saves the day in the end. In just a few short days we worked with the team at Roto Rooter to get the replacement solution installed and running. Don't do it the other way around: build a platform, collect data and hope something will come of it. Cloud computing is a method of providing a shared computing resources to the application which requires dynamic resources. However, there are few things one should be very careful when deploying Big Data on cloud solutions. After some minor testing, the team at Roto Rooter went live with the new Domino server and at the same time went live with the FastFax for Domino solution. These resources include applications, computing, storage, networking, development and various deployment platforms.
The net of the situation is that Roto Rooter was presented with battling a villian that they did not anticipate this year, but in the end we worked together with their team to help them become the superhero! And data scientists and related big data gurus should be gainfully (and lucratively) employed for years to come. They decided to get the maximum out of the resources they have and hence  they launched their Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) service in 2006. Their products have evolved a lot recently and now it is one of their primary business besides their retail selling.Amazon also offers Big Data services understand Amazon Web Services.
