CLOUDWARE WARS


Tim O’Brien raises the level of the confrontation vs. Amazon in his interview with NetworkWorld’s Jon Brodkin.

The discussion he makes between infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service – PaaS is interesting and describes the scope of how Microsoft now positions its offering, and his tone and statements show how much he believes Microsoft is now ready for prime time.

I cannot comment on the technical side of this confrontation, but I must add that in order to be a relevant PaaS vendor, either one must enable a rich set of interop APIs, in order to allow ISVs to port as easily as possible their apps and not to spend time on new issues that arise from the fact that the platform is now open.
My understanding is that this territory is still all very new; or maybe, from the announcements from SAP & AWS, Amazon has a bit more experience?
