– Many classrooms and schools are moving (or have already moved) a lot of their services towards cloud based computing. Everything from web based file storage to applications such as google docs have been moved online.
This is why I thought people might be interested in this new service called CloudSleuth.
Cloudsleuth monitors the speed of the internet backbone from various data centres around the world and is capable of watching individual networks and machines as well. Cloudsleuth monitors response times and uptime of services. As well, there site features whitepapers, forums and blogs all surrounding the issue of cloud computing. The New York Times had a good basic introduction article on the service as well.
If you have moved (or are moving) in this direction for your system, this is a resource worth checking out.
