Virtual Global Launches to Help Cloud Computing Newbies

“Cloud Computing Made Easy” explains cloud computing technology and how it drives social change

Morgantown, WV (PRWEB) February 4, 2010 -- Virtual Global, a leading provider of cloud-enabled enterprise solutions and the TeamHost™ online platform for creating SaaS applications, has launched its new portal for cloud computing information, Cloudipedia. The site, which is located at, is designed to break down the cloud computing information barrier and provide useful, actionable information for companies that are exploring the cloud computing alternative.

The centerpiece of the Cloudipedia site is the free, downloadable ebook, “Cloud Computing Made Easy,” written by industry observer Dan Blacharski, and Virtual Global CEO Cary Landis. The book explains the technology in easy-to-understand terms and delves into the hottest trends, issues, and topics like cloud security, cloud storage, software-as-a-service, and what some of the major players, including Google and Amazon, have been doing in the cloud computing marketplace. “Cloud computing is redefining how we do business, how we work, and how we think,” said Landis. “This is truly a disruptive technology and we’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg in how it will change the workplace for years to come.” In the book, the authors discuss how cloud computing has become the greatest enabling technology for outsourcing and telecommuting, and has changed the very nature of what a “job” really is.

The book also dispels some common myths and misconceptions about cloud computing, discussing the issue of cloud security—and how it can be just as secure as your in-house data center. “Another common misconception is that you lose control with the cloud,” added Landis. “In what we refer to as the ‘fallacy of direct control,’ we take on the notion that having direct control over every aspect of IT inherently leads to better services and better security. You can certainly control everything, but there is an opportunity cost involved.”

In a down-to-earth example, the book draws a comparison between using cloud providers, and homeowners who choose to use a plumber rather than fix their own pipes. In a passage from the book, the authors relate, “The guy who fixes his own plumbing suffers an opportunity cost, because he must make multiple trips to the hardware store, invest time and money, purchase hundreds of dollars’ worth of tools, and miss his favorite television show. And just like the guy who fixes his own plumbing, the company that insists on hosting absolutely everything in-house is losing out.”
