Wildfires aren’t new to California’s fire crews. But this year is different.

Cyber crime has really come a long way in the past few decades. It has evolved from “hackers”(the bad kind) merely taking advantage of software exploits and social engineering for personal gain to such James Bondsian exploits as:
Cross-site scripting, SQL injections, and cross-site request forgery are a top threat on the web
Redirecting traffic from legitimate web pages to identical copies meant to deliver software rendering attackers complete control of computers remotely
Zero-day exploits for web services (such as email) going on sale to the highest bidder

There is no doubt that EMC has shipped some Atmos storage since its introduction. Yes, EMC has Atmos. And the company claims that Atmos is specifically designed for the cloud. However, I believe that there are fundamental issues with the way EMC sells Atmos to customers. First of all, if Atmos is cloud storage, then it should be sold on a usage basis. Customers should be charged only for what they use–not for petabytes of capacity up front. After all, isn’t that the whole premise of cloud? Lowering your capital expenditures and shifting to a utility model? It makes me wonder if EMC is slowly becoming the Amdahl of Cloud Storage.
