Design your perfect server with Skali Cloud

D

After doing some research on Malaysian Cloud offerings particularly the IaaS offerings, I noticed something rather interesting from Skali. Now I always remembered Skali as an early web startup some time back in the 90s trying to ride the internet wave but failing all along the way, this however has some promise.

Cloud investment: Is Cisco the next big thing?

C

Well technically Cisco is a big thing already, a company that by itself is defining the internet as we speak with mind-blowing efficiency.
