Get your head out of the cloud....

My mantra for the day is simply this: Paradigms are seldom total.

Instead, the real world makes things complex, and this is a boon to the service oriented view of the world, whether it is under the moniker of "SOA" or "services."

The cloud craze, aside from infecting every blog out there is really a new requirement for service mediation between on-premise Enterprise applications and off-premise services. Will the cloud paradigm become total? Maybe for the consumer, but I think we have a long way to go for the Enterprise.

With its combination of security functions, virtualization support and mediation capabilities, Intel(R) SOA Expressway is in the right place a the right time to take advantage of hybrid cloud architectures.
