Weekly roundup

These are the Cloud Computing news or announcements that I found most interesting this past week, in no particular order:
  • IBM's announcements at Lotusphere. I think this is a brillinat move by IBM: incrementally expanding their current offering to leverage leading cloud services. 
  • The New York Times reports that CISCO plans to launch a computer server with virtualization software. This is an intriguing move. I'm not sure I can see CISCO being very successful in this market but they are a world class company and I'm looking forward to see how it plays out.
  • This article on the Business Mirror describes how the US Department of Defense is looking to leverage the lessons learned from leading Cloud Computing providers.
  • The New York Times released their Best Sellers API. This is a nice addition to their Congress, Movie Reviews, Campaign Finance and Community APIs.
