Cloud Series 3: Why Cloud Computing

by Dave Michels

This is part 3 in my cloud series.

This one takes a look at why Cloud Computing now. It looks at the evolution of timesharing and the utility model (originally predicted in the early 60s). It is still mostly general computing rather than voice specific, but sets the foundation for the upcoming voice discussion. The next post will start the conversation around specific voice topics, issues, and options around cloud computing.

This third piece is reasonably independent so I opted to post it over at UCStrategies.
