Cloud computing in 2010: let us get practicalby Johan De Gelas on December 23, 2009 12:00 AM EST

Cloud Computing was probably the most popular buzzword of 2009. There was a lot of hype, but basically, cloud computing is about using the large datacenters of the Internet to your advantage. Either by copying the methods they use to be very scalable and available and applying them in your own datacenter (what VMware is partly trying to do with their "private Cloud", "vCloud"), by outsourcing your infrastructure (PaaS, SaaS) to an external datacenter via the Internet or most likely some hybrid form.
In 2010, all the hype and buzz should materialize. Will you use a form of cloud computing?
