The Cloud Computing Triple Play

I just read a great article by Ted Dziuba at the register. In this article Ted covers the three different attidutes of Amazon, Google and Microsoft to Cloud Computing. This 3 large players, each provides its own attidude to this topic: EC2 with cheap books... oops.. servers, App Engine with lightweight web applications and Azure heavy weight windows/SQL server/.Net based applications.
Ted also described the three different marketing attitudes of these companies.
It is clearly that we are getting into a battlefield between cloud providers who provide open root access servers (Amzaon, Flexiscale and AppNexus) and the providers who give you a closed environment (Walled garden?) which is heavily depended on using the provider web services and API (Yap, Microsoft and Google definitly seems to share the same prespective...)

Have a bright and shiny day,
