Cloud Computing - My first tech scribble !

Cloud Computing is the latest buzz and hype in the software industry today. The term cloud here refers to the abstraction of computing infrastructure. It means that you are able to use certain hardware infrastructure for your computing needs, but you are not aware of the exact hardware location in terms of the data center as to where this hardware is present.

The cloud revolution gives you the capability of renting hardware infrastructure on a subscription basis, just like you use electricity. It provides you with an ability to rent the infrastructure for your computing needs and use and pay for it till the time you need it. It gives an entrepreneur an ability to test their software on rented hosted hardware. They can also host their entrepreneurial venture on a cloud and thus get an easy start in their endeavor.

There are various vendors who provide Infrastructure as a service e.g. Amazon, Rackspace, Savvis, Terremark etc. Eucylaptus provides a free open source cloud option. Amazon gives you an ability to rent processing power, hard disk space, bandwidth etc. Amazon also provides you with an online calculator which will help you calculate your approximate monthly bill of hardware hosting.

The cloud hosting vendors provide various operating system options from which you can choose e.g. Windows, Linux etc. Thus, just give it a try and host your application on any cloud. Have a Happy Floating Cloud Experience !

What I know & want to know ?

I know how to play cafe world well with a constant buzz rating of 105..
I know how to buy aesthetic cool stuff in Yoville !
I know how to drive cars well in Need For Speed !
I know how to code in java,jdbc,jndi,jsp,vc++
I know how to find and read good books !
I know how to be curious !
I know how to be always in a learning mode !
I know how to over analyze situations !
I know how to be critical and judgmental !
I know how to read real fast !
I know how to type fast without looking at the keyboard !
I know a bit about how to write a blog ! A real tiny bit considering the number of few entries !
I know how to try my wit at humor !
I know how to try to be happy !

I know how to think logically and rationally !

It's very difficult to define even oneself. The above list is a feeble attempt and I wrote what all came to my mind first ! When we don't even know ourselves well, our attempts to try to understand others is a difficult endeavor too ! Still my one of the top wishes to any genie will be how to read a mind and have a sneak peek in what the other person thinks !
