Cloud computing is a new field in Internet computing that provides novel perspectives in internetworking technologies and raises issues in the architecture, design, and implementation of existing networks and data centers. The relevant research has just recently gained momentum, and the space of potential ideas and solutions is still far from being widely explored. After IEEE Internet Computing's recent editorial board meeting in March 2010, editor in chief Fred Douglis invited the author, to be department editor for this new cloud computing department. This is a topic that's gaining considerable research interest and momentum, and it's expected to be the next generation of Internet computing.
