    Great post. As you mention the entire environment has become cloudy. There is a great need for definition and understanding. Much of the problem stems with providers seeing the trend and jumping on the bandwagon with me-too offerings. Hopefully as dust starts to settle in 2013 we will see some clarity and true differentiation in the provided offerings.

    Great article. Peter, you said it right, Cloud Computing became severely over advertised with out any real explanation or definitions what is being offered. And here we are, the marketing value of it IS now worthless.
    Well, thankfully there is a future in it after all.
