One area of cloud computing that has really taken off and generated a lot of interest is the development test and performance proofing of applications — all from an elastic cloud services fabric. The build and test basis of development have traditionally proven complex, expensive, and inefficient. Periodic bursts of demand on runtime and build resources are the norm.

The development and test problem really lends itself to what’s been provided by these new cloud players. The need for lots of different types of machines, the matrix problem of how you’re going to test, the “burstiness” nature of it — I might have only integration storms where I need machines — all seems to lend itself to what’s being provided.
