Cloud Computing

In Birmingham today for the Cloud computing workshop run by the JISC funded project that is looking at the environmental and organisational implications of the Cloud for higher and further education.After a quick review of the evidence collected from the interviews have conducted, its down to discussing some of the issues being raised. Trust seems to be a real issue for many, with interest in sector tailored shared clouds being of interest to some people. There is some skepticism about the environmental benefits, with many seeing the carbon load being shifted rather than reduced.Trusted sources of advice mentioned were Gartner, JISC, Educause, with vendors being treated with some suspicion.#cloud #greenict #greeningict
