When one digs more into the Cloud, there are many types and models of Cloud like Private Cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Community Cloud, Enterprise Cloud, Infrastructure as a service (IAAS), Platform as a service (PAAS), Software as a Service (SAAS), Business as a service (BAAS), Gaming as a service (GAAS), BPaas, Haas…or easier to say…Anything as a service(XAAS).

Cloud Tsunami - Saas, Paas, Iaas, Private Cloud, Public Cloud, and Hybrid clouds

  1. 1. Cloud Tsunami: Saas, Paas, Iaas, Private, Public, andHybrid Clouds – There’s One for Everyone!Businesses tend to Overestimate a technology’s impact in the short-run and Underestimateits impact in the long-run. In the next 5 years, there are going to be 15 billion devicesconnected to the internet and a lot of trends are going to transform the connected network.Concepts like “Always-on” and “anytime, anywhere, anydevice” are taken for granted and thepicture is incomplete without an element of cloud in them. One interesting aspect of cloudcomputing is enabling the emergence of measuring IT for the first time. As Intel’s Andy Groversaid “if you cannot measure it, you cannot manage it.”Few bloggers have covered Cloud Computing exhaustively. Sramana Mitra’s blog did give usgood insights into cloud start-ups and their founders. Sully’s Blog and Fusible have alreadycovered the cloud domain and interesting cloud trends. Cloudbook.net has indepth articles onmany aspects of Cloud Computing.The much talked about sale of iCloud.com by Apple for more than US$ 4 million and recentnews of Amazon acquiring Cloud.co for an undisclosed sum have shaken up manydisbelievers and naysayers of Cloud and the race has just begun on how to capitalize on thiscloud wave. The iCloud.com and Cloud.co news were widely diggd, shared, teweeted, retweeted,buzzed, stumbled upon by the media. I wouldn’t be surprised if over the next few quarters anyname with “cloud” as a prefix or a suffix quotes for high premiums in the after market and a madrush for grabbing a piece of the cloud pie ensues. Let a thousand clouds bloom and let allthose in the value chain flourish. Looks like every Cloud has a silver lining.
