Cloud computing may be heading for a major role in the marketing plans of major vendors like Sun, HP, IBM, and Microsoft. Since the Internet is really an information network, it is really as much or more about storage and software as about network routers and other bit-moving gear, and IBM’s recent announcement of cloud computing support shows that the big IT players want to formalize their participation in and control of the server side. We believe that cloud computing activity will also push out into enterprise computing, and that it is a major part of IBM’s strategy to wrestle control of networking away from Cisco and its competitors.
