Today in Cloud

I’m hardly the first person to point this out, but I really do wonder how specialized servers offerings like Cisco’s UCS will fare given the undeniable trend toward buying commodity servers. Not only does Google swear by them for its web infrastructure, but large companies already implementing internal cloud-like infrastructures seem to prefer commodity, too. IDC’s latest server revenue predictions don’t offer too promising a future either, at least not in the near term. If you’ve got thoughts on this, we’d love to hear them.
