Cloud Computing

banner_200 copy

Several of you asked me about the conference room in the cloud picture so I’ll try my best to explain it here.  InnerPass is very much on board with the industry trend ‘cloud computing’.  You can think of cloud computing as a way to use applications over the internet, but the applications are independent of platforms and physical hardware.  One of the best explanations I’ve found is by Tim O’Reilly, CEO of O’Reilly Media.  He said “everything that we think of as a computer today is really just a device that connects to the big computer that we’re all collectively building.  Cloud computing is really the movement of computing into this network of all connected devices, this network of networks.”

If you’d like to hear more, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PNuQHUiV3Q to hear what several folks in the industry have to say about cloud computing.  Tim O’Reilly’s explanation is about 5.18 seconds into the video.

    What’s happened with the latest release of InnerPass? The old one worked ok but version 2 doesn’t load properly, and hence is useless. Please fix soon as this was pretty useful.
