Nuage Networks: Agility relies on the overlay

Cell phones are keeping network configurations among different zones. No matters where you are, or what antennas, routers or switches your data/voice is being transferred through; you will be connected to your loved ones for sure. Your private cloud is distributed among different spots. Instances are moving among clusters or facilities driven by power/hardware failures, performance or proximity.

Timely drives innovation

Startups are being the way to innovate today.  Big/Medium organizations fail to enable it as an in-house ordinary process, though they have the talent and experience.

Would Bitcoin break the foreseen cloud’s adoption paradigm?
