"What is Cloud Computing?"
- Liam (2 weeks ago)
"The concept, quite simply, is that vast computing resources will reside somewhere out there in the ether (rather than in your computer room) and we'll connect to them and use them as needed."
"Cloud computing is a buzzword..."
- Jonathan Weber (The Times Online)

Applications in the Cloud / SaaS

based on Xen
priced on per hour from $0.10 to $1

for a few £'s I have big servers available
