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.

...because "cloud computing" is simply distributed systems. Not a bad idea, nor particularly revolutionary. The main difference today is that the logical servers can be slightly more abstracted from the physical servers than previous.

Besides that - my data will be stored locally, thank you very much ;)
