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 dbarney@redmondmag.com.
