Lately there seems to be a minor debate among the clouderati about the
semantic differences between the term "the cloud" versus the use of "cloud
computing". So I thought I'd jump into the fray.
As someone who spends his days eating, breathing and sometimes drinking cloud
computing, it's fun to see how the debate has recently devolved into a debate

We’ve been having quite a few discussions with analysts over the past few
months on the subject of “cloud”. The interesting thing about these
discussions is the vast array of points of view from which those analysts are

pricing/differentiation, and some are even very focused on what “cloud”

One such analyst is Daryl Plummer of Gartner. Daryl has always been very

Signpost readme says:

Getting Signpost up and running on the Vordel XML Gateway is simple. Firstly,
download the jar files for Signpost and put them into the "/ext/lib"
