Google AppEngine offers free Cloud Computing
Cloud Computing is the future of Infrastructure. Google, having built one of largest and most impressive computing infrastructures, is jumping in with an offer for developers to host their applications for free. Their solution is called AppEngine. The blogosphere is rife with predictions (GigaOm, TechCrunch) that Google will give existing services (Amazon Web Services, etc.) a run for their money. Time will tell if the features offered free will be sufficient.

The Washington Area CTO Roundtable (full disclosure: I am the President of this group) will discuss the topic at a sold out event at the end of this month.
