2845011813_82652e268b_o The end of our first week! CloudAve launched on Monday after lots of behind the scenes work by people all over the place – we’re stoked to be here (or more correctly there) and hope you’ll join us for the ride. As you’ll see below it’s been a busy week with a lot of valuable content for our readers – we hope you agree!

Editors welcome

Both Zoli and Ben welcomed the world to CloudAve and discussed whether we’re actually on a suicide mission with this cloud thing – especially after comments made by Harry Debes. Later in the week we looked at a response to Debes’ comment by Dave Duffield.

Cloud Computing to the fore

We took a look at the trend towards self-provisioning of hardware within enterprise and said it’s yet another justification for Cloud Computing being the way forward.

Cloud Computing – the myths and realities

Krish took a two part deep dive here and here into the myths, the realities and everything else of Cloud Computing.

Presenting a presentation

Zoli gave an example of why desktop applications are (or at least should be) a thing of the past.

Some product reviews

Although CloudAve doesn’t blandly republish press releases – we do cover cool new products. This week we took a look at Oprius and Zendesk

We don’t bite!

Ben explained why traditional PR doesn’t cut it with him – and gave advice for anyone wanting to get some exposure on blogs he’s involved with.

On email hacks and subverting IT

Krish wrote a timely post about the Sarah Palin email hacking incident.

Email is alive and well

Just to annoy some of the Web 2.0 wonderkids, Zoli told everyone why email is far from dead.

Your channel is king

With recent developments for Netsuite we looked at what they’re up to with their sales channels. We also posted about sales channels generally and how important they are for SaaS vendors.

Advice for Steve Ballmer

Not content with running the greatest blog this side of… well somewhere, we decided to give a slightly tongue-in-cheek piece of advice to Steve Ballmer.

Anti virus in the cloud

Dan took a look at the move of anti virus software into the cloud in this well thought out post.

Congrats to Michael and the team

On the occasion of TechCrunch’s millionth feed subscriber – we posted our congratulatory message.
