Professional Cloud Service Manager Day 1- May 17th

So day one of the Professional Cloud Service Manager course is drawing to a close. The silence is deafening as the delegates are taking a sample exam. Five minutes left and then freedom for then for the day.

The day started out questioning what cloud is and how best to describe it let alone define it. The day ended with a clear knowledge and understanding of what cloud is and how the world has been using cloud based technologies from the 1950s.

We also examined in-depth a number of critical roles related to cloud computing and took the cloud broker role to a whole new level. Coupled with a one hour workbook test, I would say the class will welcome the end of the day.

It’s onto strategy for cloud computing in the morning. Though instead of slideware it’s a hands on review of a real cloud strategy document which is very interesting and cements the importance of the learnings from day one.

An Ode to Cloud

It is Poetry Day Ireland today, so I thought I would get into the spirit of things.

An Ode to Cloud

There was a time; when clouds were near
rain would follow, soon to clear.
With resource-pooling; clouds grew bigger;
Self-serving themselves with a snigger.

The clouds you see race through the sky
meeting planes as they fly by.

Clouds of old just want to rain
on our heads and down the drain.
The dark grey clouds cast out the light,
while wispy ones they just take flight.

The clouds you see race through the sky
meeting planes as they fly by.

But when it’s dry and thirst arrives,
that is when things get contrived.
“Please just rain”; we command.
But alas; not on-demand.

The clouds you see race through the sky
meeting planes as they fly by.

Clouds today are internet bred.
A mix of public, private, hybrid.
Do clouds today seem less complex?
And more elastic when run on OPEX?

The clouds you see race through the sky
meeting planes as they fly by.
