Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
As Microsoft and Google duel it out for productivity application dominance in the cloud, startup Zoho is looking to win over small and midsize businesses with its low prices and complete suite.With all of the smack-talking and chest-bumping going on between Google's enterprise team and Microsoft's Office group, it's easy to forget about other cloud computing vendors who may be affected by Microsoft's launch of Office 2010 May 12.
Office 2010 includes Office Web Apps, a cloud computing-based component of its productivity software suite designed to challenge Google's own Docs document, spreadsheet and presentation applications. Office Web Apps includes Web-based editions of Microsoft OneNote, Excel, Word and PowerPoint which Microsoft users can access through their browser.
