Chirag Mehta is an SAP evangelist with a background in technology and architecture that spans 15 years. Mehta writes on a variety of topics, and his style reads like a conversation with a trusted mentor. He’s got five years of back catalog to draw from and still updates regularly.
Business Cloud News’ masthead reads like a Who’s Who amongst technology leaders, and it’s that deep pool of authors that lets it post new and fresh content so frequently. With a focus on cloud computing and related technologies, there’s a ton of great content in this blog including sections on security, IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. They also have a weekly newsletter that makes for some good reading offline.

Visit Cloud Tweaks for articles but also for its cloud humor section! Another blog with several authors, Cloud Tweaks covers current developments, trends, best practices and more in the cloud computing space.
Geva Perry has been named as one of the Top 25 Most Influential People in the Hosting Industry, Top 50 Cloud Computing Bloggers and one of the 12 Top Thinkers in Cloud Computing, and he has a lot of great things to say about cloud computing. His minimalist blog makes it a little hard at first to find what you are looking for, but like an old book store, you’ll value the time spent rummaging amongst the shelves.
CloudAve is another blog with a large cast of writers, and with a focus on evangelism and SaaS, the entire team consistently publishes great content on all things cloud.
Inside-Cloud’s tag line is Cloud News Without the Noise, and the team of authors strives to deliver concise and cogent coverage of developments and trends within cloud computing. The no-nonsense, just the facts writing style still lets the authors’ combined passion for the topics shine through, and the blog is great place to learn about things in cloud computing you might not hear about for weeks from other sources.
Joel York is a one man show alternating between education and evangelism. His writing tends to target more of the C level and architect roles than any others, but his views on coming trends and passing fads make for some very interesting reading, and may get you thinking in directions you didn’t even know were options.
