Cloud Computing

So, the new buzz word is Cloud Computing. I will give you some insight on what Cloud Computing is.

Cloud computing is Internet- ("cloud-") based development and use of computer technology ("computing").[1] In concept, it is a paradigm shift whereby details are abstracted from the users who no longer need knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them.[2] It typically involves the provision of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources as a service over the Internet.

Thank you Wikipedia....Ok, even more confused.. Let me break it down for you.

Pretty simple concept here is it: basically virtual servers available over the Internet.

There are new of companies joining the band wagon of Cloud Computing everyday, even ATT is on board.

I ran into a company I thought was cool as hell, A-server. A-server has created a java app that allows you to create you own datacenter online and its up and running in minutes. You can even do VoiP.

With so many companies cutting back and scaling down, these companies work well for them. Their biz model is PAY AS you go...Sounds great.
