[Tech] Cloud Computing

As I think, I already mentioned here, I believe, that Cloud Computing (and Software as a Service, but this is a slightly different topic) are true game changers in our understanding of software infrastructure and development/deployment. Currently things are still quite rough around the edges, but I believe, that in like 3-5 years the default option of application deployment will be in one cloud service or another. Putting iron into the cellar or storage-room will be what it should be in my opinion: mostly a stupid idea ;-)

In the current stream of IT Conversations George Reese talks about practical aspects and experiences with current cloud-services like Amazon S3, Simple DB, virtualisation... Recommended!
