Many vendors and users today present their applications as being cloud-ready or cloud-aware, when what they are really saying is that you can install it on a cloud platform or virtual machine.  To really make an application cloud-enabled, you need to facilitate "on-demand, convenient, rapid provisioning that can be released with minimal management overhead or service provider involvement".  A virtual appliance, created using IBM ICCT is how you truly make your application cloud-enabled!

With IBM PureSystems, you get to deploy virtual appliances, individually or as groups, that are fully and expertly integrated, and that solve specific complex problems.

FusionWare can help you create a virtual appliance to truly cloud enable your applications.  For more information or to contact us, visit our website at

The last few years have been interesting to say the least.  A number of developments that we have been anticipating have begun to take hold of the market, and a shakeup has resulted.  Actually, we had expected some of these things sooner, and others were different than we had expected, but that's the nature of the beast.

Here I outline a broad-brush of where we see ourselves going.

I've been working with Windows Azure since it first released, and I just recently completed my IBM Certified Solution Architect -- Cloud Computing Infrastructure V1 exam.  I've found that the map of cloud computing is a bit like an old mariner's map.  There's great opportunity for those willing to be pioneers, but there are also regions where the map says "Here there be dragons!"  For cloud computing, I think the map should read "Here there be cats!"

In this exciting conclusion (if you can call it that) to my previous blog post, I time the run from Superstore on Grandview in Vancouver to my home using our new iPhone App - FusionWare Stopwatch Connected, and compare the results.

My wife and I have always debated whether Rupert Street or Boundary Road was the faster way home when we shopped at the Great Canadian Superstore on Grandview Highway in Vancouver.  Now we can settle it once and for all using my new iPhone app: FusionWare Stopwatch Connected

I had heard that it takes forever to get an iPhone App accepted, but the reality turned out to be different!
