No. You are paying for data and voice from your provider. Same as if you buy a PC, you pay some provider a monthly fee for internet. This would be like paying $10 month on top of your plan for IOS or Android to keep functioning. That doesn't sound so good.
I guess you can do something about it.
Heh, I could of written this comment. Time, the most precious resource.
If I am going to code anything on what little time I have you can be darn sure it is doing something that amuses me and has 0 politics attached to it. That means solo projects.
mmm yams. Meant ya.
Yam enough of the poor Kim articles. I only have so much self-righteous rage to go around. Sounds like he made his bed, now he can sleep in it.
kicked or capped?
Actually I am agreeing that it is a super awesome project as OP has. Grandfather OP is the Mr.Genius you should be replying to.
Came here to say something like this, but you hammered the point home much more eloquently.
nevermind. Very cool.
Those numbers surprise me. thanks.
I wonder how big an organization would have to be to actually make a private cloud useful. As you say, part of the benefit is having access to infrastructure that you don't have to pay for unless you need it. If you own the cloud than you have paid for every last piece of iron that is sucking up power in your datacentre. Does dynamic provisioning offset this cost? Would governments be the only clients that private clouds truly make sense for?
Excactly, that is the key here. It does have its purpose and all too often these discussions focus on the 'Cloud vs Inhouse'. It's not that simple. You have weighed the pros and cons and have determined that cloud computing is more advantageous for you and probably a whole lot more cost effective. But its not a fit for everyone and I suspect cloud services over promise to some clients for which it is not a good fit.
Indoors? Must be sweet, I have never been indoors.
With the conservatives sometimes you win some and sometimes you lose some. The minute it becomes politically advantageous to harm the internet in the country you can bet they would. This is not a government that is concerned with doing the right thing. They want to get re-elected first and foremost. This time it worked in our favour. The other two major political parties are no better. The article makes it sound like Canada has it all figured out. I was chuckling when I read it. I guess if your frame of reference is the US political system then Canada looks great.
