New Computing Architecture

Nicholas Carr points to a Paul Strassman video and writes:

Strassmann examines Google’s computing architecture in considerable detail, arguing that it provides a model for the network-centric computing of the future. Up to now, Strassmann says, we’ve had “millions of islands of automation,” or IT “cottage shops,” that are inherently inefficient, unreliable, inflexible and insecure. Google’s architecture is a “harbinger of a new era” of universal, shared computing.
