Re: As a Service
@Cloudtech - Glad you liked the article! It's pretty crazy isn't it? Look at what silly little Salesforce did.

This whole new "as-a-service" craze is only pushing ahead. What's the end all of this? "Everything-as-a-service."

Just take a look at what Google is doing (or is about to do.)

They are:
  • An ISP
  • Application Provider
  • Data Center Host
  • Data provider
  • An Operating System
  • Communications Provider
  • Cloud provider
  • TV/Entertainment Provider
  • Hardware provider
  • Private Search Engine

Did I forget anything?

Re: As a Service
@hash.era - 100% agreed! There is so much being done around the cloud API right now that the industry is buzzing. Check out my latest blog

I've spoken to developers, hosting providers, and end-users. They all are awaiting for a true cloud API resolution. I'm looking forward to seeing how this develops further.

Re: As a Service
"The "as-a-service" phenomenon started with SaaS -- applications that are 100 percent hosted in the cloud and that require no on-premises installation. It's since evolved to include infrastructure and dev platforms, disaster recovery, and analytics, just to name a few."

Bill, thanks for the introduction to new offerings from cloud. Now everything comes under the preview of "as a service" and no doubts within a couple of years it becomes "everything as a service'

Re: As a Service
Very interesting indeed. I would love to try this Data as a Service and API as a Service. Especially the API as a Service feature. I think it's the ultimate answer for the API compatibility issue.

Re: As a Service
@Ariella - Big data crunching in the cloud... I see a lot more of that in the near future. As platforms become more integrated and more resources become available in the cloud, you'll see even bigger services become offered directly from a cloud model. 

One of those examples will be big data analytics. Maybe even BigData-as-a-Servce.

With so much new data being produced by online organizations - companies are actively trying to figure out better ways to control their data. In some cases, the power of the distributed cloud model can really help. Companies which have multiple locations - all over the world - can use cloud services to pass massive amounts of information and analyze it for value.

As a Service
With regard to data as a service, I see that companies like 1010data tout their big data analytics in the cloud as much more economical and efficient than in-house data processing. It also partnered with Tableau software to offer quick reports and visualizations for the data crunching as per its July 31 press release.
