Cloud Does Not Equal SaaS

Far too often "web based initiatives" such as SaaS delivered software are lumped together with "cloud computing".   I'll admit, I was just bit by placing them together in my mind as well.

I was very happy to see this article come across my newsreader, IBM Unveils Cloud Computing Division, Strategy and Partnership.  I scanned and scanned and did not see any mention of Lotus.  ;-(

After re-reading it with my shoulders all tense, I realized it is more about data centers and hosting for customers IT.   So not mentioning LotusLive is ok I guess.   Still it would have been nice to have provided an example, such as hosting a company's Domino or Sametime servers.
