This blog is dedicated to quantitative analysis of the means by which cloud computing creates value. As an example, how do different strategies for node (data center) dispersion reduce end-to-end latency? I am Joe Weinman, and my simulation website is Complex Models. My other blog, The Network Effect, is focused on network structure and dynamics. I propose the “10 Laws of Cloudonomics” in BusinessWeek, courtesy of the GigaOM Network.
