About grids and clouds
As anticipated by Nicholas Carr in the "Big Switch" cloud computing is becoming a reality and little by little companies will be switching from internal data centers to external ones as a paralelism to what happened with the passage from internally hosted electricity generators to the time in which everybody was connecting to the electricity grid.
GeneXus was up to speed with this concept and especifically Ignacio Roqueta's talk was very clarifying as far as the existing grids (Google apps and Amazon's grid) as well as future project ones (Microsoft's). Also, the talk unveiled that GeneXus will provide tools to automatically migrate to the main grids that are compatible with the main generators. Good news :)
