My good friend and colleague, David Chou (Microsoft Architect Evangelist) was interviewed recently by Jeremy Geelan at Sys-Con Media on the topic of Cloud Computing.
While acknowledging that lots of work is currently being done to differentiate and integrate private and public cloud solutions, David believes that Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) is the area of Cloud Computing that will make its impact most noticeably in 2010 – especially for startups, and small-medium sized businesses.

At the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco last week, Steve Ballmer announced the new Popfly beta. Popfly is a very cool rich internet application that enables you to very easily build compelling web page and composite (“mashups”) applications. Popfly essentially enables anyone with a browser and a mouse to build a web mashup app.
As Denny Boyton writes about in his blog post Architectural Thoughts on Microsoft Popfly, one of the compelling aspects of an application like Popfly is that it enables anyone to build mashups. It does not require programming skills and it is completely visual (no coding). Denny also does a nice job highlighting the architectural significance of Mashups and use of Popfly and Silverlight.
One of my colleagues in SoCal (David Chou) has a blog post based on his presentation at the IT Architect Regional Conference 2007 event in San Diego. David discusses a number of issues and challenges in planning and designing security for enterprise SOA efforts, and offers some approaches for navigating the issues.
