Oracle Thinks Cloud Is Marketing
All the Cloud mantra mean to companies is the ability to cost efficiently deploy IT infrastructure in a tactical manner. That's it. How it's architected is typically based on the individual vendor's portfolio of h/w and s/w solutions.

It seems that the ever expanding and contracting of this business is on an "conrtaction" mode and soon we'll be back on some sort of mainframe architecture, as vendors bring virtual computing, virtual networking and virtual storage under "one roof" of cabinet.
