Oleg Komissarov, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions at DataArt, contributed a by-lined article to HPC in the Cloud.
2012 Cloud Forecast outlines key goals for software industry leaders as PaaS, IaaS and SaaS providers invest billions in infrastructure and enterprise leaders start building strategies of adoption of cloud technologies.
"Not surprisingly, cloud computing will remain a hot topic in 2012. Leading Platform-as-a-Service providers will keep investing billions in huge datacenters with megawatts of power capacity. Software-as-a-Service platform development will be a main goal for software and Internet industry leaders and enterprises will all weigh in on the best approaches for adoption versus adaption to cloud strategies. 2011 may have been cloud's fifth birthday, but in 2012, the six-year-old will start making a truly distinctive name for itself."
