Re: Superpod spin
If it is dedicated hardware, it is a hosting solution, not a cloud solution, no matter what Salesforce.com and HP want to label it as. Sure, it may have a web front end, but putting it all into an appliance makes it a remotely hosted server just like any old-school database in a datacenter. And you have an excellent about about flexibility and scalability. Can you add resources on the fly to the Superpod and remove them as easily? If not, again, not a cloud.
