Microsoft Azure embraces commercial blockchain and Red Hat OpenShift now available for IBM and LinuxONE. This and more for the least you need to know about cloud this week.

CloudAdopt™ Insights


Bobby Allen, CloudGenera CTO, recently talked to an analyst firm about what we do in the cloud computing space. They were blown away that our platform tracks the changes in public providers nightly. They noted around 800,000 different pricing & config changes last year and we think that number is probably low.

There is a big difference between knowing that something changed vs. knowing what actually changed. Our research team has built a process to track what’s really happening. We can tell you the stuff that got more expensive while you were focused on the price drops.
