Da Cloud

I'm spending a lot of time covering the cloud and like much of what I see. 2011 will be a year of steady progress. IT will evaluate, test, plan and, in some cases, implement. For many, it will be a year of watching how new cloud solutions mature, and defining the exact economics of these alternatives. We always like to think that technology changes overnight, and it can in terms of offerings. But actual use is based on lots of testing and lots of analysis. The cloud may be a revolution, but won't be nearly as quick as the Bolsheviks.

Amazon prospers: I know, I just said the cloud will take some time to take over. But one company, Amazon, has been in the business for a long time, and will do quite well this year. If its cloud infrastructure is good enough to power the ever-growing, responsive, and uncannily efficient Amazon e-comm business, it should be trustworthy enough for the early cloud pioneers.
