Red Hat’s chief architect of cloud computing, Bob McWhirter said the cloud is the next logical step for application delivery in his keynote on cloud computing at TheServerSide Java Symposium. Arguing about what applications are “cloud worthy” misses the point, he said.
“Ultimately the cloud is a continuum,” said McWhirter. “It’s the same technologies just a little bit different – the next step of the process of where we’re going with technology.”
When the goal of an enterprise is delivering service that happens to come over the internet, he said, meddling with hardware is becoming unnecessary.
