The guys from The Cloud Geeks are truly that: geeks. Ones who have become obsessed with the way the cloud works currently and how to fix it. Now, I try not to toot our own horn on this blog cause it is one that is meant for discussion not self aggrandization. However, there is something we are working on that I have to talk about and it fits perfectly with the topic of networking.
The neural center of a cloud is its network. The brain may be in the actual servers but the network is its spinal chord and nerve endings. The cloud is nothing without it. And networking is about to change drastically as people start to convert from IP v4 to IP v6. I explain both of those and what the cloud geeks are doing for them after the break.
Do you ever wanna check your Twitter or tweet about something that’s important to you and get the Fail Whale? Twitter serves 19 Billion searches per month. That’s more then Google or Bing. Sixty five million tweets a day from over a 190 million users. That requires some serious horsepower. But something in that kind of demand shouldn’t fail. Seems like a great case for the cloud, doesn’t it? Think about it, you’re serving that much data you would want to have almost infinite power and redundancy. You would also want some load balancing and maybe even a content distribution network.
So, who offers all of these things now, in one integrated form? The answer to that, and why it still doesn’t work coming up.
