Rob Pegoraro thinks ‘everything as a service‘ is on the way.
First there was software as a service, and then compute and infrastructure as a service, then platforms as a service, and now even storage and databases as a service. The “private cloud” brought the same models into enterprise data centers. And the “hybrid cloud” blew the data center walls out and mixed everything together.
Management is a bitch, though. Who will manage that? ‘Everything as a service‘ will have arrived when everything I can buy from Apple can be bought as a service.
