And this is not about the recession. This is Amazon's news that they are now putting some of their cloud in Europe. I have to say that I always thought that it always was in Europe. But I guess it is more in the EU now than it was (probably so that businesses that have to say that they host stuff in the EU can stay with that). Even so, it seems to be going against the grain a bit (if clouds have grains). I thought that half the point of cloud computing was that you were never too certain where the computing was. I guess we will move our buckets to the European zone......one of these days (that is the other thing about clouds, no need to be too precise about when they are wherever they are).
