Cisco's acquisition of newScale points to a movement toward an Infrastructure as a Service model.  The official Cisco announcement discusses the possibilities:

"Cloud computing represents a major shift in the evolution of the Internet, and as more customers migrate from traditional IT infrastructures, the need for rapid self-provisioning and efficient management becomes increasingly critical," said Parvesh Sethi, senior vice president of Cisco Services.  "With the acquisition of newScale, Cisco will be able to accelerate the deployment of cloud services through a service catalog and self-service portal that allows customers to easily manage their IT infrastructures."

What new cloud-based services will be on the Cisco menu over the next  few months? Only time will tell.
