The Ipad just got a lot more business friendly with the work of Google Docs and their acquisition of Quickoffice. i have to say, I would have considered buying a Windows tablet before, but with the Quickoffice app, I have most of what I need on the Ipad. Thanks to Google.

Want an IT Job? Add 'Cloud' To Your Buzzword List

jaygatsby27 Re:Today's word..."Cloud" (187 comments)

The idea that you can create a bundle of resources via virtualization and a blade center teams with a SAN array creates a cloud that doesn't have to be outsourced. You aren't clustering in this environment so much as generating a lot of resources that are more than simply redundant locally. You could lose 5 of twenty servers all at the same time and if you still have the allocated resources abvailable the pplication maintains its availability. In general, i agree with you that outsourcing to a cloud is what people want cloud computing for, for transfer of risk. Has everyone read "Does IT Matter?"
