Cloud Computing IaaS is maturing and a new generation of services are available
The cloud industry has grown tremendously over the past few years and the growth shows no sign of slowing down. Now, as the IT channel, particularly VARs and MSPs, ramp up their customer deployments, Cloud Computing 2.0 technologies like ProfitBricks, make it easier and more profitable for growth to accelerate. On-premise server sales will continue to decline as cloud computing infrastructure becomes faster, easier to use and more profitable to sell.
History of Cloud Computing From Shared Hosting to Dedicated Servers to Cloud Computing 2.0
You’ve heard that “Cloud Computing” has been around for a long time and it’s just a new name for what we have had for a while – on-demand infrastructure. This Infographic looks at the history since the Internet went mainstream in the mid-90′s.
The History, Opportunies, and Challenges of Manged Service Providers
Managed service providers (MSPs) have had many definitions as they have worn many hats throughout the history of technology. They are generally defined as outsourced technology companies that play a major role in driving the adoption of the latest products and services at small and medium sized businesses.
The technology world is shifting to cloud computing on a broad scale, the question is: how will MSPs adapt and transition to a new business model? ProfitBricks is pleased to present this infographic that examines the historical role of MSPs and how they fit into the cloud computing realm.
Remember When CPU Performance was Guaranteed?
Since the early launch of the PC in the early 1980’s, CPU performance has been defined by the clock speed and front side bus of the processer. It was simple and easy to understand and Intel and AMD battled the MHz and GHz wars over the years. This infographic looks at server class CPUs from the Pentium era CPUs of 1993 to today.
How Much Does IT Cost
Cloud Computing pricing can be confusing - some providers have pricing pages that are 10 pages long printed. This infographic will help you learn how to look at the different pricing factors and see what a real sample cloud data center costs between two providers who have made their pricing public.
