The Emerging Cloud Wars

The rise of cloud computing has already proven to be an incredibly disruptive force in the world of enterprise software. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings like Amazon EC2 have launched over 15 million virtual machines; Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings like Dropbox have grown to over 3 million users; and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings like Heroku now support over 60,000 cloud applications.

One can imagine a future world where both big and small companies view computing as a pure utility, outsourcing the vast majority to public infrastructure but maintaining just enough to "keep the lights on" in house. This future is a very real possibility and major players in both the Internet and enterprise software markets are jockeying for position.
