the Cloud, taking shape

I really like how The Burton Group analyst quoted in this article frames up the current cloud paradigms:

“The cloud market has typically been sliced up into software-as-a-service offerings (Google Apps), platform-as-a-service offerings (Microsoft Azure), and hardware infrastructure-as-a-service offerings (Amazon’s EC2)….IBM’s move fits into another category that has seen increasing attention called a software infrastructure-as-a service offering”
