Executive Summary

Cloud computing frequently is taken to be a term that simply renames common technologies and techniques that people have come to know in IT. It may be interpreted to mean data center hosting and then subsequently dismissed without catching the improvements to hosting called utility computing that permit near realtime, policy-based control of computing resources or it may be interpreted to mean only data center hosting rather than understood to be the significant shift in internet application architecture that it is. Perhaps it is the name. Certainly it is more nebulous than mnemonic.
