Between Mircrosoft and Google, which one will win the Cloud?
asked by Farshid Sepassi about 1 year ago

Could hurt Microsoft as many companies revamp themselves for the era of "cloud" computing, a Google-backed approach in which software is easily accessed online and sold as a subscription product, rather than installed on companies' computers.

"All of a sudden this looks really serious," Gartner analyst Tom Austin said. "By all accounts, [Microsoft] should be burying Google, and they're not." Microsoft's Mr. Shaw said, "It is a long race, and we feel good about the products we're delivering."

Oh..and something else came to mind. Working within a secured military environment, thank you William for bring up security, how will cloud oriented companies, those developing and distributing the technology, address military installations.. The military is going to surely be skeptical of such technology, how will these companies overcome the obstacle that is our National Security? We can only have some many mainframes, they are always being hacked..
