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.

Is it Skynet then?

Business use cases are being provided because we are talking about whether or not it is useful to businesses.

Furthermore the business use cases described here fit the services offered by Amazon's EC2. Perhaps Amazon doesn't understand cloud computing either?
