Cloudy conference



I recently visited a cloud conference sponsored by Google. Disruptive startups like Freshdesk were also featured. I initially thought that the company is a small call center kind of firm. I found myself wronged when I heard they acquired 1click while they’re still raising funds.

This attendance helped me take first steps in cloud technologies.

A lot of things came up and one line which I still remember is:

People do not buy technology, they buy what it does for them

We were shown how cloud technologies can help reduce on premise cost and resources.

  • You can create and destroy instances in minutes
  • Take entire control of your IT infrastructure in your own hands
  • Pause instances to avoid unbearable bills
  • Pay as you go
  • Get backup and security of your data and apps
  • And many more
