Quote of the week, from Michael Coté, channeled by RedMonk partner James Governor. Think of the cloud stack as a burger:

  • IaaS = servers, storage
  • PaaS = middleware
  • SaaS = applications

"There now, that wasn’t so hard was it? Now that is what I call a burger. The next time someone tries to take you through 30 slides explaining the cloud you can just nod sagely, and say… 'ohhhh. you mean servers, middleware and apps. Yeah I get it.'”

Hmm. Everything in moderation; you don't want to overdo it with burgers. Are James and Michael trying to tell us something?
