Redefining the whole networking paradigm

On December 17, 2008, I wrote a post titled “Hosted services with a vengeance“.

In that post, I argued that hosted services are not trying to fool us by changing their name to Cloud Services, but they provide new options and real value.

I guess I was right.

I just read the 6-page paper monsoon-presto08.pdf titled “Towards a Next Generation Data Center Architecture: Scalability and Commoditization”, which I downloaded from

The paper is about how Microsoft (as a cloud provider) is building its cloud services data center network.

I was really impressed.

These guys are redefining the whole networking paradigm.
