Nicholas Carr wrote in Microsoft to put “many millions” of servers in cloud about the plans of Microsoft regarding cloud computing. Well, i know, we like Microsoft now, but i simply can´t resist: Microsoft has a vast experience in providing an operation system for cloud computing. Botnets are not that different from cloud computing and there are millions of member nodes in this clouds … sorry … botnets. PS: Is it just me, or is this whole cloud computing hype just another name for “services controlled by a grid engine” ?
