The size of the Internet, the dimensions of the Cloud Computing business

An interesting infographic has published the Anglo site Wikibon, which allows us, making the appropriate comparisons according to the realities and markets of each one, to establish, or rather properly dimension the size of THE CLOUD, the new fashionable term in the virtual world and that refers to something like Big Brother 1.0, the predecessor of what we will have in the near future. A limbo of bits, with all the information in real time and stored in remote servers, located in remote data control centers; a business that, more and more, in addition to having a huge economic projection, ensures the management of information and the entire world. But, all this cloud has a physical support; it is necessary that there be a piece of hard disk at present, but that in the future it will be quantum or neural, in which each piece of our life converted into bits is housed Let’s see the current dimensions of THE CLOUD, comparing it with the current Data Centers and its undeniable economic advantages

Technically speaking, what is THE CLOUD but a mega Data Center or several of them, in such a way that in the simplest exercise of economy scale is applied; the golden dream of car manufacturers and Made in China; the economy of scale; a Mbps / Month in a Data Center has a cost of 95 dollars per month, against the 13 of the cost of the cloud; a 7.1 times more efficient ratio, thanks to its large size and operational capacity.

This result is based on comparing operating costs between a 1K Data Center and a 100K Mega Data Center, which as data to get an idea, each have a size equivalent to 11.5 football fields.The concept is simple, it is simply tries to take the architecture of the business, to a magnitude so, but so great, that the cost, for example, of maintaining 1,000 servers, a usual amount in a small Data Center, but that in the Cloud Computing scheme, is only part of one of the 100,000 of the total Data Center, which reduces business costs from $ 3,350,000 a year in the first, to only $ 798,000 in the case of the Mega NUBE Server Obviously this business profile is not viable within personal entrepreneurship, since with the magnitude of the initial investment, you really have to be the Pied Piper of Hamelin to be chosen and sell a project of that size to investors willing to bet and of those, there are few; both chosen and millionaire investors.For example, one of the big Amazon, which is constantly increasing its storage capacity, going from 500 million dollars in revenue in 2010, with a healthy 25% increase in 2011 with 750 million to, about from $ 2.5 billion in 2014, just a portion of a market that is estimated to enter something like $ 15-20 billion globally in 2014. What is not entirely clear is exactly from what source that revenue will come. By sales?‚Ķ By the value of the information that the data has on each client?‚Ķ or by administration?‚Ķ. for advertising? … for hosting? by applications?‚Ķ are we going towards paid social networks? It won’t be a bad deal; Facebook costs you a monthly dollar if you want to use it 500 million dollars a month is not so bad We leave you now with the infographic:Click to enlarge
