Computación en la nube: ¿la ola del futuro?

Recently, Google announced the future release of Google Chrome OS and this has caused quite a stir on Twitter and in the technology blog scene. Everyone is talking about how cloud computing and SaaS applications are the waves of the future and how they will change the computer industry. Although I believe this to be true, I still find one glaring weakness in this argument; Cloud computing and SaaS are not only the waves of the future, but are the waves of the here and now.

Si bien algunas empresas han estado utilizando SaaS durante mucho tiempo, muchas grandes corporaciones (p. Ej. Microsoft, Unisys, IBM) han lanzado recientemente productos SaaS a un ritmo cada vez más rápido. Tanto es así que Brian Sommer de ZDNet anunció recientemente en su Blog que, "SaaS ahora es la corriente principal". Esto muestra que el mercado está listo para adoptar SaaS, no dentro de unos años en el futuro, sino ahora mismo.

The guys from the hosted solutions blog got it right when they said, "[Cloud] technology isn't the future, it's today." As the talking heads continue to debate the future of cloud computing and SaaS, us already in the SaaSosphere, will enjoy the benefits it can provide today, and determine the role it will play in the future.
