Internet & Networking I attended VM World last week, and as you might imagine, it was "cloud computing" this and "cloud computing" that the whole time. The hype factor for the cloud is in overdrive right now. But is it warranted? A lot of people, even tech-oriented ones, outside of the data center sysadmin types, wonder what all the hype is about. I've come to believe that cloud computing is major computing revolution, but for most computing users, it's an invisible one.

Heh I'm pretty sure the datacenter sysadmins are wondering what it is all about too... usually there are at least slightly paranoid and probably will never trust the cloud with any significant data.

Hence the focus on private clouds. The benefits of the cloud without entrusting your infrastructure to a 3rd party.
