Quote of the Day -- Thorsten von Eicken on Cloud Computing & Grid Computing in the Enterprise

 

Its easy to say ah, well just run some cloud management software on a bunch of machines, but its a completely different matter to uphold the premise of real-time resource availability. If you fail to provide resources when they are needed, the whole paradigm falls apart and users will start hoarding servers, allocating for peak usage instead of current usage, and so forth.
