Dell. EMC. HP. Cisco. These Tech Giants Are the Walking Dead | WIRED
"The Cloud is ... the way that the giants of the Internet—aka Amazon, Google, and Facebook—build their businesses. These companies built Internet businesses so large—businesses that ran atop hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of computers—they eventually realized they couldn’t build them with hardware and software from established vendors. They couldn’t use traditional storage gear from EMC. They couldn’t use servers from Dell and HP and IBM. They couldn’t use networking gear from CiscoThey couldn’t use databases from Oracle. It was too expensive. And it couldn’t scale."
