About

The Cloud Observatory is a blog discussing themes and topics around cloud services, building architectures on top of hyperclouds and how to actually run them in continuous operations. There is quite strong focus towards Amazon Web Services, but no other topics are left undiscussed, if I find the need to do so.

The focus tries to be more business and cloud strategy oriented than tidbit technical, but every now and then there are some technical thoughts as well.
