Podcast: What happened to Utility Computing?


The concept of utility computing is no longer prevalent in our industry as the focus of cloud computing has really changed the way people think about compute services. In this podcast, Todd Lyle, Founder Duncan Cloud Services Brokerage talks about the limitations of cloud and how it has not yet delivered the utility computing ideal.

Todd also provides greater insight into the SMB market adoption of cloud computing and where changes in that market can bring about a true utility computing environment.

Guest: Todd Lyle, Founder Duncan Cloud Services Brokerage

In 2007 Lyle launched Duncan Cloud Services Brokerage to participate in the development, implementation and governance of this exciting new utility. At Duncan, Lyle assembled a business and technology savvy team that created “ingenious cloud computing services bundles that focus on affordable and customer-centric solutions.” *

Today Lyle draws on his military and private sector experiences to teach and talk about continuity, operations, security, and best practices when it comes to people using the internet.

Lyle’s years of process development and his various wins and losses have allowed him to become a practical innovator in the realm of technology solutions. In 2013 Todd was encouraged to share “need to know technologies” with the layperson, the result being THE GROUNDING THE CLOUD© leadership series.
