Just did a trend search on job site Indeed.com for "cloud computing". Whoa.
Job postings are often a leading indicator for expected business activity, and this graph speaks for itself. Cloud computing is clearly more than hype when so many companies are hiring for cloud-related positions. It's also interesting to note some of the companies that show up when you run the search. You get a little bit of insight into the plans of companies such as Dell, Yahoo, Intuit and VMWare.
