One of the primary tools Cloudbook uses for creating the video component of a Cloudbook StoryTM is Cisco’s Flip MinoPRO HD camcorder. Flip helps Cloudbook introduce the new generation of Cloud stars, enabling them to tell their stories in a format that is spontaneous, natural, convenient and free of the drab backdrop of a studio curtain.
In a very real way, SOASTA and Amazon grew up together: SOASTA with its game-changing performance testing application CloudTest, and Amazon with its game-changing Cloud Computing environment EC2. Together, they are helping companies like Intuit answer the crucial question of whether their Web sites can withstand huge increases in traffic, and generate the information necessary to optimize their architecture and implementation.
