My GigaOM Pro report on metered computing

I’ve just had another report published on GigaOM Pro. This one, Metered IT: the path to utility computing, is about the importance of defining common ways of describing and measuring computing resources. Until you can do that, it isn’t really feasible to compare the true cost of running jobs on different IT infrastructures.

The piece was underwritten by 6fusion, a company with an interesting offering in the space. As usual, though, GigaOM retained full editorial control over the process of preparing the report.
