a) “WE BELIEVE that clouds are unjustly maligned and that life would be immeasurably poorer without them”.
b) “it does not have to maintain multiple sets of artificially high levels of resources to handle peak demands”.

From a security perspective Scott Bradner has an interesting twist on the “security nightmare” that comes with cloud computing.
As for rolling your own cloud …. have a look at Hadoop.
