I’ve seen quite a bit of change in the way we conduct our daily lives. I don’t always go behind the scenes to research upcoming technologies, so it’s always a pleasant surprise when big new things come out. In the present day, the big new thing is cloud hosting. Every time I visit a data center, I feel like I’m looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars being wasted on old technology. Of course, local severs still make sense for large companies, but for startups and small business, why not use the cloud? Even some big names are fully invested in could services. Netflix, Posterous, and Priceline.com all use cloud solutions.
