re: Does The Cloud Keep Pace With Moore's Law?
I wondered if someone would ask about that. ERP and other software applications have never been on anything like a Moore's Law curve. They've benefited from it, and exploited it, but programmers pound out about the same amount of code they always have (though it generally does more).
In my article, I'm careful to point out that I'm only talking about IaaS, where the things your buying change in capability on a log scale. PaaS and SaaS (in particular) offer different value propositions, so I wouldn't compare them this way.
But when it comes to IaaS, I'd ask any provider to show me exactly how they account for Moore's Law, and if they don't have a good answer, i wouldn't buy from the vendor.
