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.

The problem with cloud computing is the same as when IBM introduce the concept (though they didn't call it cloud computing) in the 1950's and the solution is the same: if it's critical to your business, do it yourself regardless of cost. Otherwise, go with the most-reliable, cheapest solution.
