Private Clouds Again

As mentioned in the previous blog post on Private Clouds, the vendors are coming out with some products on this technology.

IBM launched the CloudBurst and HP BladeSystem Matrix.

All the three types of private clouds look promising at the current moment; IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. Service oriented, self-provisioning model of Cloud and the pay-as-you-go billing are key factors of success for Clouds.

Google Fusion Tables

One can now upload upto 100MB table with a total limit of 250MB as of now to this new experiment.

It is surely a step towards taking the spreadsheets to the cloud. But will it pose a problem to BIG database vendors too in future?

Let us wait and watch.....

To know more about Fusion Tables go through FAQs and play around.

Next dimension in search - Google Squared

Google has released a new search tool - Google Squared. This provides a structure to the unstructured data. It searches for all the related information and puts the data into a "Square" - a typical spreadsheet format. One can add rows and columns to it and save the Square.

It looks very good at the first look. All the best Google!!
