Which is cheaper: Public or private clouds?

InfoWorld - Thu, 10/20/2016 - 07:10

It's a debate that's raged on for years: Which is cheaper, public or private clouds?

A new report from 451 Research finds that two of the most critical factors that influence the cost of a public versus a private cloud deployment are an organization's ability to efficiently manage infrastructure and utilization of hardware resources. Generally speaking, if any organization has the expertise to manage a large number of servers at a high level of utilization then on-premises, customer-managed private clouds can have a total cost of ownership (TCO) advantage compared to public clouds. For smaller environments, or any sort of variable workload demand, public cloud is a more attractive financial option, 451 Research's Director of Digital Economics Owen Rogers reports in "The Cloud Price Index: The great public vs private cloud debate."

Apple expected to announce new Macs at a special event October 27

InfoWorld - Thu, 10/20/2016 - 07:02

It's official -- the wait for new Macs shouldn't be much longer. Apple just sent out invites to journalists to a product unveiling at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino. The event will take place next Thursday, Oct. 27, at 10 a.m. Pacific.

Naturally, the invitation doesn't specify what Apple will announce -- the tagline is simply "Hello again." Smart money is on updated Macs, since nothing but the 12-inch MacBook has been updated this year. Rumors have been swirling that Apple is prepping an update to the MacBook Pro line, which will include a set of touch-sensitive OLED keys to replace the function row along the top of the keyboard, allowing those keys to change based on the application you're using.

Here's how Google is overhauling its cloud storage offerings

InfoWorld - Thu, 10/20/2016 - 06:49

There are big changes afoot for Google Cloud Platform's storage offerings. On Thursday, the company announced a complete overhaul of the storage options available to customers, complete with new storage tiers and reduced pricing.

Customers that need incredibly high availability storage can use Google's new fully managed Multi-Regional Cloud Storage service, which will replicate data across multiple Google Cloud data centers in different areas for high-uptime access. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the company also launched a new Coldline storage service that's designed for data accessed less than once a year like backups.

[ Download the public cloud megaguide PDF: Amazon, Microsoft, Google, IBM, and Joyent compared. | Stay up on the cloud with InfoWorld's Cloud Computing newsletter. ]

The storage changes are part of Google’s overall pitch to capture businesses in a highly-competitive cloud market. Managed, multi-region storage will be helpful for customers who don’t want to worry about reliability, and the new Coldline storage will help GCP compete with other cold storage offerings like Amazon Glacier.

Yahoo is asking that the U.S. government set the record straight on requests for user data, following reports saying the internet company has secretly scanned customer emails for terrorism-related information.  

On Wednesday, Yahoo sent a letter to the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, saying the company has been "unable to respond" to news articles earlier this month detailing the alleged government-mandated email scanning.
