Original Post From Dan Kusnetzky for Virtually Speaking
Floyd Strimling, VP Community, Technical Evangelist for Zenoss, stopped by a while ago to speak about his opinions on the topics of OpenStack, Google App Engine versus Amazon Web Service, and different approaches to open source projects he's seen companies adopt.
Our conversation started by focusing on cloud computing frameworks and the approaches organizations are using to deploy their applications. I'm not going to attempt to capture all of the thoughts that were discussed. Here is a short summary:
I always enjoy conversations with Floyd. He is a very knowledgeable, highly opinionated and very personable spokesperson for Zenoss. I've also enjoyed opportunities to work with him on projects Kusnetzky Group has done for Zenoss.
I really support his view that organizations need to take the time to understand their requirements, their expertise and develop a solution architecture before adopting technology. Just because a product or service is highly publicized or popular in the media doesn't mean it is the best choice for an organization's specific needs.
