“CtrlS is Asia’s Largest and India’s Only Tier IV Certified Datacenter”- Prashant, CtrlS

The opening day of the recently held WHD.India 2013 had a session titled “Reaching the next level of hosting” by Prashant Jain, Director, CtrlS. It was the last session of what had been a long exhausting day with multiple sessions lined back-to-back.

As the emcee invited Prashant on stage, I was expecting yet another run-of-the-mill session that was titled to come across as genuinely interesting and informative, but was actually rife with product pitches of the company. What followed pleasantly surprised me. One of the only three talks ou...

When someone explains Software as a Service or Cloud Computing to you – do you have one of those moments where you hear the words, but can’t make sense of what they are saying?  Here is an analogy that virtually everyone can understand. We all understand the cost of buying and maintaining a car.  Today, people can either buy or lease a car.  In both cases, some repairs are covered under warranty or included in the lease, but there are still costs involved to operate and maintain it.  Not to mention the hassle of selling or trading the car in when you need a new one.  What if a third option were available – Car as a Service?
