Nice strategic piece on the post-OS reality VMWare is gunning for.
"The radical game changing part is what is missing from the picture below. Note (that as I have previously predicted) the OS is not present in the picture.

- Cloud Engineering: Somebody Has to Do It – Gartner [$$$]
"A new set of skills are poised to become part of the skill set that management will apply when making decisions regarding cloud services — that of a cloud engineer. Because cloud services typically deliver commodity-like capabilities, often with consumer-grade SLAs, enterprises will increasingly be dealing with the challenges that result. This will create the need for cloud engineering. Gartner defines cloud engineering as the process of designing the systems necessary to leverage the power and economics of cloud resources to solve business problems. It is based on some of the fundamental characteristics of cloud computing, along with two characteristics of the intersection of the cloud and the IT organization."
