New Year Resolution – “Ready for cloud in 2017”

You all had a party for holidays, to celebrate new year, Christmas, Kwanza, Hanukkah. Now what? back to reality – Love the most.  Along with it, there would be a whole slew of new year resolutions. How about a work related resolution? You don’t have to have your boss set goals for you, you should have a goal for yourself.

It is 2017 and in all probability, you will be using, marching towards or will be dragged kicking & screaming into the cloud. In all probability, you are using some form of cloud for your personal needs. The biggest hold back I see is the security concerns and the investments that are already made.

Knowledge is powerful and in the new year, make a resolution to learn about the unknowns. You already have your servers in a data center of your own or co-hosted with a vendor. The data centers of the cloud are no different. Microsoft has come up with a 3D visualization of one of the Azure data centers.  It is simply wonderful.

If you search the internet, you will find similar videos for Google as well. I’m sure you are backing up your photos to google or if you are using an android phone, you data lives in one of the data centers anyway.

Let’s start the journey. The journey is as important as the destination.
