Amazon’s Cloud Computing Digital Blind Spot
Amazon Web Services (AWS), the Amazon.com cloud computing juggernaut, wrapped
up its annual reInvent conference in Las Vegas last week. Host to many
thousands of AWS devotees, hundreds of exhibiting partners, and dozens of
press and analysts – but not myself. You see, I wasn’t invited.
Not for want of trying, mind you. It didn’t matter that I had attended last

Amazon Is Seriously Challenged By Microsoft
AWS was in the premier position having had a head start of more than 4 years
in the cloud related business. The lowering of prices by Microsoft; a new
CEO; an emphasized bet on the cloud have all contributed to Microsoft Azure's
adoption by the enterprises. One of the reasons for this being the better
tooling; the variety of applications and services; and not-for-Windows only

For its latest trick Amazon Web Services has launched CloudHSM so users -
pointedly the enterprise - can up their data security and meet compliance
requirements by using dedicated, tamper-resistant Hardware Security Module
(HSM) appliances within the AWS cloud.

It recognizes that some applications and data are subject to rigorous
contractual or regulatory mandates... (more)
