Server purchases are not easy decisions. Here are ten buying tips for you. They range from where to buy to whom to buy, and what not to buy. They also answer the question why to buy
All organizations have IT users who use technology with varied levels of intensity. In the corporate world, you will see workers replying to mails every 30 seconds, and there are workers probably adding a line or to a mail trail when it is absolutely necessary. There are highly productive workers who find emailing an unnecessary evil. That doesn’t mean they don’t require email. They do, but they may not like to reply to every email or they will not even read every email. I believe that the number of user based subscription model should be replaced by a far more scaleable model where you price email services based on the number of emails stored, sent and received.
Most public cloud adopters choose the model because they are not sure about what their growth rates or what their usage spikes would be. And this is perfect thinking. They also do not want the meddle with setting up hardware, or even entertain the idea of buying hardware. On top they do not want to hire a sys-admin to set up the infra for them. This is perfect startup mentality.
Unless there is a disruptive product introduction, I am willing to bet that PC market will stay ahead of the tablet market for another three years.

My question is how long will the happiness last? Someday Uber and Ola will kill rest of the competition. Some day they will run out of all monies, and their investors will demand returns. They will call for a successful IPO. And post IPO at least they cannot afford to lose money on every ride. Well they can, and even if so for how long more?
So whenever that happens, I am unable to figure out how consumers will still get free rides or discounted rides, and taxi drivers continue to make the same amount of money. No Arthematic or Logical reasoning is helping here.How can taxis which pulls in at the best 18 kilometres to a litre of diesel still continue to be cheaper than a rickshaw which pulls in 30-35 kilometres to a cheaper kilo of LPG?
A number of customers across all sectors from small business to the largest enterprise will shift base to a public cloud.
Not all of them will move, but some of them will move. And those who move, may not move everything. That's why hybrid cloud concept is so exciting.
