Hype-Master Rains on Cloud Parade
Larry Ellison is the king of hype, and gosh if I don't respect him for it.
This time, instead of promoting the network computer or bashing Microsoft, Ellison
is taking a few shots at the concept of cloud computing.
Larry's beef? That clouds refer to almost anything going on in computing today
-- Web services, SaaS and massive datacenters from the likes of Amazon. VMware
is even talking about turning our datacenters into mini-clouds. If you check
out the link, there's a great discussion about the future of clouds and
what this all means.
Are clouds over-hyped and what do clouds mean to you? Answers, please, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
