"Cloud is you using someone else's server"

"Cloud is you using someone else's server..."  That was the introduction to a Cloud 101 talk given by Tim Pinet at the February monthly meeting. What followed was an interesting overview of what the 'cloud' really is, what it means to our daily work and personal lives, and what to look for when considering a cloud solution. Tim's sage advice for those implementing a corporate cloud solution: be aware of the often competing risks and benefits of a cloud solution. And always plan an exit strategy.

Many thanks to Tim for generously giving us his time this stormy Tuesday night, and for his elucidating and engaging talk. Look for Tim's slide deck in the Event Presentation section.
