What makes a vendor a true cloud computing company today? How do we define cloud computing in 2011? And what exactly is cloud washing or "cloud creeping"?
Those are some of the questions we attempt to answer in a discussion about CRN's second annual Cloud 100 list, which charts the top cloud computing vendors in the industry. While the cloud computing industry continues to grow and emerge, there are still some challenges today regarding industry standards and definitions for cloud computing.
CRN cloud editor Andrew Hickey and Rob Wright, managing editor, online, go behind the scenes of the Cloud 100 and look at the rapidly evolving cloud industry. The two discuss how the Cloud 100 list was composed, the spread of cloud technology to the consumer market, and the biggest growth opportunities within the cloud market.
