Cloud Computing and Virtualization have been named the top 2 strategic technology trends for 2009 by various analysts. With the current climate of tight IT budgets and restraints on capital expenditure, Clouds come to the rescue with pay-as-you-use models for compute, storage and software resources, and offer flexibility to scale-on-demand.
