Summary:

Jason Hoffman knows a good deal about the cloud computing landscape, so what he has to say here bears noting.

Jason Hoffman, former CTO of Joyent and now Ericcson’s director of digital strategy talks connected cars, worries about whether space-age “smart pajamas” can electrocute us, and says Amazon Web Services will continue to “crush” all the current IT players but could face a challenge from Google if the search giant does a few things right. Oh, and Microsoft will be number 3 while OpenStack will remain “an interesting backwater.” (He’s quoting someone else there.)

But first, Derrick Harris and I discuss IBM’s big, new Watson push — guess what — it’s investing 1 BILLION dollars in a new division — as well as  Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff’s stance on OpenStack and a bunch of other stuff.

Some of our clients use http://www.rtwhosting.com for their IaaS / PaaS as their tech (SSD) is award winning and cutting edge. Amazon may be right for most, but for those who want the best, it is not that
