Even though there are some real concerns about HIPAA rules and data, the cloud still looks like it will have a major role to play when it comes to healthcare. But a lot of this is most likely to stay with private clouds or on-premises. Very little reliance will be put on the public cloud. Survey A HIMMS Analytics and Level 3 survey has found that this increasing adoption of cloud for a number of healthcare functions has been prevalent in the last couple of years. The survey shows 47 percent of the respondents planning to use the cloud in office which is 22 percent higher than a couple of years ago. Also, 47 percent were keen on using the cloud for disaster recovery and business continuity. The cloud certainly is poised to play a pivotal role as far as healthcare organizations are concerned. There are a lot of providers who are planning to or already using the cloud too. Organizations are now more willing to trust the cloud when it comes to their health information. They are testing platforms using back office applications and are planning on leveraging cloud solutions so they can manage analytics and storage. Happy Patients […]

The cloud computing market has started to grow somewhat significantly in Europe. There are now billions of dollars being invested in the country from some of the largest tech companies in the world. Microsoft Looking to Conquer Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) has spent around $3 billion (€2.82 billion) on its Azure data centers in Europe as of now. It is now targeting France where it will get together with AWS to build cloud facilities in the year 2017. Apple is supposed to be spending around $1 billion in Denmark on their new data facility. Facebook is planning a data processing center of their own too there. The main reason for all of this activity is evident when Satya Nadella went to Europe and announced a book called A Cloud for Global Good where there are tons of policy recommendations for the cloud with the main focus being on privacy. The first chapter of the book talks about the problems of intrusive surveillance, the right to privacy, and uncontrolled data collection. How can you preserve free expression and privacy while protecting the safety of the public? It is a very important question, especially in a place like Europe where privacy rules are […]

The .NET framework of Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) will be celebrating its 15th birthday this Feb and a lot has changed since it first came out. It was launched in 2001 with Windows XP, and the Visual Studio application environment could never have known that cloud or mobile computing would become so popular. Since that time, there have been dozens of programming languages, application development environments, operating systems and device types launched in the marketplace. Mobile and Cloud Here, we’re going to look at a few of the trends and issues when it comes to cloud development, and how developers will be able to choose the correct platform. We live in a mobile and cloud age which is driven the most by Linux, iOS, and Android. In this situation, how is Microsoft’s .NET framework being able to remain relevant? The thing with .NET is that right from the beginning it has focused mainly on empowering developers. But it has been developed more than fifteen years ago when desktop computing was all the rage and Windows was the most dominant operating system. Since then, the market has moved to heterogeneous systems in mobiles and the cloud. .NET had to be expanded and […]

Microsoft, the tech giant, has invested $3 billion (€2.76 billion) in Europe in cloud computing, and says it is going to start offering services out of data centers in France from next year. The company made this announcement in Dublin at a Tech Gathering with Satya Nadella delivering the news to everyone. Better Cloud Access Cloud computing isn’t just about single destinations. He said this while he was outlining the plans of the company to create a global hyper-scale cloud. He said that they now had more than thirty regions across various parts of the world which were working to ensure cloud access was available to everyone. Transforming Microsoft into the first mobile-first, cloud-entity in the world has been one of the key strategies of Nadella since he took over as CEO. This push to cloud computing has made it possible for Microsoft to double their computing capacity and has allowed them to deliver these services in Europe as well. European Data Centers Among the investments the company has made, there has been a marked growth in the data centers which they are operating in Europe including countries like Britain and Ireland. Nadella said that he didn’t see any impact […]

In simple terms, you can define cloud computing as the storage and access of data and programs on the Internet as opposed to on your hard drive. But, it doesn’t end there. It also refers to a set of networks, hardware, services, storage, and interfaces which combine to deliver various aspects of computing in a service. So it isn’t just about sharing information, even the infrastructure could be shared online. One of the main aspects when it comes to the cloud is that there is no clear locality for hardware or data. Services might be sold to clients in one jurisdiction, and their data may be processed or stored in multiple other locations in different jurisdictions. The client might not even know where their data is being stored or processed. Threats of Cloud Computing Now that you have a brief idea of what cloud computing is, let’s take a look at some of the threats that it faces: Privacy and security The information which is housed on cloud servers mostly includes confidential information or intellectual property. Any risks of access to confidential and personal information will always pose an immediate threat. Application design When you consider the needs of various […]

From the view point of technology, delivering computer services using the cloud is now mainstream. We are using something or the other that is linked with the cloud every single day. For consumers, interactions that are cloud-computing driven are becoming more commonplace and regular. Need a ride? There’s Lyft or Uber. Have a question? There’s Google Now or Siri. What about music? There’s Pandora, Spotify, etc. Businesses have also started leveraging cloud computing based services from online storage companies. This is a rapidly growing business as far as cloud computing is concerned. A Perfect Analogy In all of these cases, the idea involves leveraging an inexhaustible supply of computing, storage, and network connections to deliver computing like a utility just how power companies are delivering electricity to businesses or homes. Web-based companies are writing software which can take advantage of this utility in a way which lets them run services on this infrastructure and build business models around them. However, traditional businesses have been slower to move to this type of computing. There’s a lot of talk about private clouds or hybrid clouds which mix elements of private and public clouds but in reality, adopting these concepts has been much […]
