Last week was an exciting week for the Virtualization and Cloud customers and potential adopters. During VMWorld 2009, a handful of announcements by the cloud computing "picks" and "shovel" providers marked the beginning of the "Cloud API War". Folks, what's at stake here is vendor-lock in (for provider) and interoperability and portability for customers.
