What happens to the prices for cloud computing in recent years

What happens to the prices for cloud computing in recent years  
 
I noticed that in Silicon Valley a lot of noise about the fall in prices for cloud computing. Entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and the media are writing about this trend, arguing that it has allowed a new wave of start-ups to emerge in areas such as artificial intelligence and large-scale data processing. Many articles state that new technologies and high competition over the past few years have dramatically reduced the cost of the clouds.
 
 
An example from Nathan Benaich, vice president of Point Nine Capital:
 
I believe that artificial intelligence is one of the most promising and progressive ...

How to deploy the infrastructure for Pivotal CF, or the Recipe for puff cake in pictures

How to deploy the infrastructure for Pivotal CF, or the Recipe for puff cake in pictures
 
 
A year ago, the task of deploying the Pivotal Cloud Foundry product (which is, in fact, the reference model of the PaaS model) "flew into the competence center for IT management and monitoring systems". In a nutshell, Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) is a ready-made commercial solution for enterprises that:
 
 
need a platform running in a hybrid environment or in a multi-cloud environment;
 
want to move from the use of monolithic architectures to cloud schemes;
 
want to start digital services next generation from the first day of use;
 
already use Java or Spring for the deployment of microservices.

As our customer did not want to release the provider

As our customer did not want to release the provider  
 
The story is rather short, but funny. With her, really encountered our customer. It all began at the moment when one of the IT infrastructure providers decided to transport their data center. And he warned all his clients about a half-day downtime in about six months, but he was so busy with time and organized bureaucratic red tape that some customers simply did not have time to prepare for migration.
 
 
Imagine: you are CIO. You do not have a budget for an emergency backup site. There is no old equipment either. Business is connected with the provision of medical services, every extra hour of delay ...

Why can not it be so simple to take and implement "green" technology in the data center

Why can not it be so simple to take and implement "green" technology in the data centerMore recently, issues related to the environment are being raised. Including among the participants of the IT industry. Today the data center consume more than 2% of generated electricity in the world and isolated about the same amount of carbon dioxide as the air transport industry.
 
 
Participants in the green symposium Green Enterprise Computing predicted such an outcome 10 years ago. Thus, the deteriorating environmental situation has generated a request for "green" technology and IT infrastructure using renewable energy sources.
 
 
However, no...

How self-service systems solve theft problems in

How self-service systems solve theft problems instores.Issues of fraud and theft in stores are related not only to customers, but also to staff. One can debate which of them is responsible for the large losses. In practice, this indicator can vary depending on the assortment, the location of the outlet and the security features of a particular store. The experience of our clients shows that the ratio between the amount of losses from buyers and staff is about 50 to 5? with a slight advantage in favor of the latter. That is why retailers are forced to fight on both flanks, and take advantage of self-service technologies to reduce losses.    Perhaps...
