“” if the cloud overloads (or goes down), users can outsource CPU cycles to a different cloud. IBM and Juniper Networks will demonstrate how a hybrid cloud could allow enterprises to seamlessly extend their private clouds to remote servers in a secure public cloud, as high priority applications are given preference over the lower priority ones when resources become constrained... Once installed, IBM and Juniper could seamlessly roll client workloads from Beijing to Silicon Valley to Sao Paulo to ensure that clients never miss a service level agreement.”
Let’s face it, the cloud is the future, and while Apple has struggled (cough- MobileMe -cough) with that future, Google owns it . Google Search. Gmail. gCal. Google Docs. Google Maps. YouTube. Knol. Chrome . And the list goes on and on (and on).
If they can flip the switch and truly, seamlessly integrate everything, not only between applications but across desktop, laptop, and handset, it will make for perhaps the most compelling offering ever on the market.
