'Amazon's ambition is infinitely scalable'
Ha, "Amazon's ambition is infinitely scalable." Acutally, I think Amazon is quite disciplined when it comes to taking automation that it's made to work for itself internally and then externalizing it as a service. When they go into mobile devices, I think that's the minefield on which they'll lose a limb or worse.

Re: After outsourcing.;should we call this "in-sourcing?"
It's helpful how you explain it that way. And interesting that Amazon has acknowledged the reality of hybrid clouds -- and found a way it thinks it can make money from them. Amazon's ambition is infinitely scalable.

After outsourcing. should we call this "in-sourcing?"
It used to be you placed your computers in a co-location facility or you placed them in rented wholesale data center space or you simply, or you contracted for a managed service where your system was run by someone else in a remote data center. These are all forms of outsourcing. What Amazon is offering is in-sourcing--keeping virtual machines on your physical servers on premises but managing them through a remote systems management console in the cloud.
