A recent presentation in Holyoke, Massachusetts, brought together principal players from state government, higher education, and information technology. With Gov. Deval Patrick making the official announcement, a $3 million plan was announced to architect a public cloud space for big data projects by university researchers. The state forged this cross-sector partnership because its big data industry is strong and growing, as indicated by the 2014 Mass Big Data Report. The report, which gathered survey information from over four dozen specialized companies headquartered in the state, determined that approximately 4000 jobs will be created in the industry during 2014. Granted, the figures from the report were generated by surveying 1/10 of businesses in the field and multiplying the total job numbers by 10 (in other words, it’s a loose estimate). Big data: how it’s gr... (more)

2013 Has Been A Terrible Year for the Internet

In 2013, we published 84 blogs. This is the 85th. The last of 2013. With the last blog of 2013, instead of chatting about the Cloud, instead of talking about web hosting and instead of talking about how to resolve Linux OS issues, we are going to tackle a much larger topic – one we touched on yesterday in “The Internet is Broken. The Cloud Is Next.” For the last Solar VPS blog of 2014 we are going to talk about the continuing broken state of the Internet, the problem with Verizon, AT&T and Comcast, and why, once and for all, American ISP’s need to match or better the offered Inter...

The Secret of the Cloud

We need to get something off our chest, proverbially speaking. We are a Cloud hosting provider. We provide Windows Cloud, Linux Cloud and Cloud Apps on Demand to the market.

It’s true, brand blog writing should cover and represent the brand in which the blog is being written however we are also people with real thoughts, needs, ideas. For the longest time we have watched as the Cloud market tumbled on through building greater and vaster solutions utilizing the ICT (Information Communications Technology) market. We have watched as th... (more)

Forecasting the Future of IT Is Scary

On December 16, 2013, our friends over at Compare the Cloud wrote a blog called “The Day Computing Changed Forever – and We All Missed it.” The blog centered on what the future of the Cloud could hold for society. Ironically enough, the post was published on the same day that Google (pictured below) announced it’s new line of products – four legged military machines. SkyNet anyone? Anyway, in the post our friends over at Compare the Cloud set the stage for what the future of the Cloud and IT in general could look like. From operating in the world via customized avatars, to fitt... (more)

The Internet is Broken. The Cloud Is Next.

This time of the year, the web is bombarded with end of the year articles, New Year’s Resolution blogs and this year in retrospective posts. Well, we aren’t going to do that on the basis that those articles are annoying and written to gain clicks. While clicks and traffic are a great thing, as recently noted by Luke O’Neil in Esquire, the Internet model of content distribution and truth, is broken. Mr. O’Neil argues the Internet is broken. We agree. More troubling though than content distribution patterns is the technology keeping our broken Internet running. That is to say, the ... (more)
