Cloud Computing Sites
Answer
9/4/12 5:54 PM
Has anyone surveyed the exiting sites, like http://searchcloudcomputing.techtarget.com/ and the CSA, etc. sites? I think it would be helpful to make a list of the biggest ones and then look at them to figure out where we want to be in the landscape. Going back to today's discussion, there is a lot to be said for using the IEEE brand as an authority -- to set up a vendor-neutral source of reliable information and to demysitify the cloud for consumers, for example, in areas like security, which seem to scare everyone in IT and at the end-user level.

Yes, great idea. I am starting a "Cloud Computing Web-sites" area in STC>Documents.

I agree that "Vendor-neutral" is key consideration. We should rely on resources from organizations such as NIST and CSA.
