Dumping gear in the public cloud: It's about ease of use, stupid


Re: How many ?

"many industries require burstable systems."

Would you mind name at least 5 ?

What confronts me and my team are:

Time and expense systems - at end of month everyone logs on to do all the work they should have done in the month

ERP systems when doing end of month reporting, or trying new cube/datamart based data analysis

And separately ERP systems when people do very large MRP roll ups

Transactional web sites when the company is offering sudden discounts or at the end of bidding by subcontractors. These aren't general public facing

Less so as this can be predicted - mathematical modelling of business processes and trying different parameter sets.
