Cloud Computing Keynote Thoughts

Nicholas Carr, author of The Big Switch, was the keynote this morning. He spoke about Computing becoming a Utility. Cloud computing is all about computing becoming a utility to be delivered like electricity -- and how this will change the shape of business.

My thoughts on "The Cloud":

Is Information Technology (or computer architecture) too challenging and or too much overhead for many businesses? 

Cloud computing and Virtualization are just new names for Managed Servers and Hosting and Managed Services.

When data shows that businesses are using cloud services, the term is so general (much like the term UC, unified communications), that it includes data storage/backup, managed email, web conferencing and hosting. (think about that the next time you see the data).

Moore's law has outpaced Grove's Law, Carr showed. Until now. Supposedly, ubiquious broadband is catching up to computing power.
