"Definition of 'edge': everything outside the data center. Definition of 'cloud': someone else's data center."
-- Jeff Ready, CEO of Scale Computing, during a March 18 webinar on Industry 4.0 and Edge Computing
(This is cute, but grossly oversimplified. Your laptop is outside a data center, but I doubt you' d call what it does edge
computing; and someone else's data center that doesn't provide self-provisioning and pay-as-you-go isn't a cloud).
"If by moving a data center to the cloud you are introducing a lot more privacy and security risks, I would argue that you have not architected the rest of your solution correctly."
-- James Parker, of Education First, during a panel at the TechEx Cyber Security and Cloud Expo
(in one of the good moments of an event that otherwise rehashed a lot of known stuff about the reasons to move
to the cloud, the importance of considering the business case, the need to consider the migration costs, etc., etc.)
