Cloud Computing and the Internet of Things

In the cloud, as in your investment portfolio, diversification is a good thing. The existence of multiple service providers with the ability to offer consistent software solutions and a solid infrastructure stack is a tremendous benefit to application developers, ISVs, telcos, MSPs and hosting services.

In this talk, Joyent CEO David Young, will expose the folly of the belief that a single provider can offer a complete cloud solution. By specializing in a specific service or market niche, and building partnerships to complement their portfolio, service providers and their customers can better leverage the latest innovations from multiple vendors to improve service delivery and customer satisfaction. Providing a networked approach to services allows customers to access highly tailored solutions and specific applications to deliver the performance capabilities they require, without overwhelming capital investment.
