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.

Hi, you Worte "There are two technological innovations that, available together, make cloud computing possible:"

I totally agree but want to add that without service orientation inside of the apps in the cloud you won't have the right services. So the ROI won't be as high as if you have those services. So, you need a former hype "innovation" - SOA - which is mainstream today ;)

There is one of my Blog items "Cloud-SOA=Zero" at
