I have had a few interesting cloud related articles that I have been meaning to share. Slowly, the melding of the cloud and enterprise virtualization are starting to become more apparent.
- Peter Laird’s (already dated) Visual Map of the Cloud Computing/SaaS/PaaS Market: September 2008 Update. I appreciate the way Laird separates Cloud, SaaS and Paas which are each very different. I’d expect an update to this shortly that features VMware…
- The 10 Laws of Cloudonomics is an interesting set of “Laws” for the cloud
- Some food for legal thought on how Cloud computing may draw government action
I would expect to see more articles that start to talk about the joining of the cloud and the enterprise datacenter over the next few weeks…the cloud is not just for the web2.0 or startup anymore.
