I agree, TJ. It makes sense to have cloud servers in a variety of locations -- much like the Internet. But I would guess this depends on the size and sophistication of the software provider. I'm sure there of plenty of cloud services that concentrate their data in one office.
Design News has reported on numerous software companies and applications in the cloud. Hurricane Sandy put the cloud concept to the test; did it pass? Would the software in this article have been immediately accessable Tuesday October 30th?
I would surmise good cloud design would involve duplication of the cloud on opposite sides of the continent, or even different continents, to survive natural disasters.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
