All "cloud" hysteria is just work of stupid marketoids. Stupid because they spent corporate money for apriori useless idea - "let's collar our sheep". It works for mediocrity, but IT much smarter than marketoids think. They even smarter than typical boss of "cloud paradise".
M$ screams about Vista, pushes Sharepoint, lauds Win7, now these "clouds", but nothing of these works.
People, stop 'em, stop yourself, don't waste your time - there is much more to do in current projects.
