La Condition Humaine | Rene Magritte, 1933It seems like everywhere I go these days, people are talking about cloud computing… Would it be accurate to say that almost everyone are “fairly optimistic” regarding Cloud Computing?

For your convenient, I have collected few cloud-buzz-quotes to  spice your cloud computing elevator pitch:

  • According to Gartner: “Cloud computing heralds an evolution of business that is no less influential than e-business”
  • IDC on Cloud Computing: “This is about the IT industry’s new model for the next 20 years“, Vernon Turner, head of enterprise infrastructure, consumer and telecoms research.

  • Merrill Lynch estimates that by 2012, the annual global market for cloud computing will surge to $95 billion and that 12% of the worldwide software market would go to the cloud in that period.
  • In January of 2008 Amazon announced that the Amazon Web Services now consume more bandwidth than do the entire global network of Amazon.com retail sites

    Yep (with another Quote ;)

    “Is Cloud Computing Ready For The Enterprise?” …

    “Not Yet, But This Disruptive Innovation Is Maturing Fast” …

    “Infrastructure and operations professionals can try to ignore it as it is just in its infancy, but doing so may be a mistake as cloud computing is looking like a classic disruptive technology.”
