muSOAing for 7/6/10 – Cloudy with a chance of Rain

While SOA and services have become the bread and butter for integration and delivering applications over the web, what is the prognosis for the Cloud. I would say very, very good. The Cloud is permeating every Horizontal and Vertical layer of computing and not only that it is beginning to address the need of every type of consumer starting with Grandmothers to the IT departments of major Fortune 50 companies.

Never before has such a paradigm taken root with such rapid speed and gained the amount of mindshare it has so as to qualify as a true Computing Revolution. Dwelling on all the aspects of the Cloud, it’s past, present and future will fill several books but suffice to say that in the following few posts I will attempt to distill this information as best as I can. I would even go so far as to say that this paradigm can be termed the Water Hyacinth of the computing world but in a very, very good way.

So how do we get our arms around this and where do we start. Let us start with the Individual. Let us examine how cloud computing paradigms are playing a role in our daily lives, affecting our lifestyles and what does it have in store for the various types of users out there including casual users to your most fanatic computing geek.

Hang on tight, it is going to be a wild ride.
