Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) (Pink Sheets: ETCIA) today reported its fourth quarter 2013 results. Sales for the quarter were $431,846 compared to $615,667 for the 2012 fourth quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $35,696 or $0.01 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $85,481 or $0.04 per Class A common share for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “2013 sales were adversely impacted by the government sequester resulting the delay of some customer projects. In spite of this impact we generated positive earnings for both the quarter and the year.

We are cautiously encouraged by the market activity and anticipate our market remaining positive in 2014.”

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love.
