The Datacentre Battle is over and Public Cloud has won

By Doug Johnstone

2015 has become the year that Public Cloud won the Datacentre Battle. The effect of this can be seen with global organisations like Rackspace and HP exiting the IaaS  (Infrastructure as a service) market and beginning to sell their competitor’s Public Cloud offerings. This year we also saw local based Datacentre providers (somewhat reluctantly) launch Public Cloud offerings. You should expect to see further consolidation of global and local providers as they hastily exit the IaaS market as their businesses begin to be heavily substituted by Public Cloud Services.

Death to the Upgrade - and other benefits of Fronde’s own cloud journey

By James Valentine

One of our strategies at Fronde is to “Drink our own Champagne” (a slightly nicer description than “Eating your own dogfood” we feel). That is, we look to operate our business in the same way we advise our clients to. This means taking to heart our IT liberation message and implementing the same systems and approaches we espouse. We do this so that we can prove the benefits ourselves and honestly discuss with our clients what it’s like to work in a new way.
