What the IBM, Amazon partnership means to the cloud
February 13, 2009[From Computerworld]
February 13, 2009 (CIO) This week brought the very interesting news that IBM is making some of its software products (database and middleware, primarily) available on Amazon's EC2. IBM is also offering Amazon Machine Images (AMI) preconfigured with its products, ready to begin running in EC2. The products and AMIs are, for today, only available for development, not production, but IBM and Amazon plan to offer production versions available on a per-hour of use basis in the near future.
