Research firms are predicting strong growth for the cloud computing markets.
Google is officially in the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) business. Last week at the Google I/O Developers Conference in San Francisco, the search giant unveiled Google Compute Engine, a utility computing service that lets users run their workloads inside the company’s vast datacenters. While the public cloud can be used for a range of workloads, Google has suggested several primary use cases, including video rendering, data analysis and high performance computing.
