Google has an enterprise division? Yes, and here's how they're using every asset the company has, from Apps to Android, to beat the big players.
Dave Girouard first joined Google seven years ago, back when the search company wasn't even on the radar of corporate customers.

Google's cloud-based operating system seems promising. Too bad the lousy demo hardware gets in the way.
Google's Chrome OS isn't as farfetched as it sounds. The underlying concept, the computer and operating system as portals to content in the cloud, seems like an inevitability, really. While a lot of content still resides on hard or solid state drives, all signs point to a day when we'll rouse a sliver of a MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Mar 1, 2011 4:27 PM ET

The chipmaker wants to standardize online computing. Will the rest of the industry get on board?
Can Intel do for cloud computing what it did for Wi-Fi?
