The cloud herd grew by one this week with the announcement of HP's Public Cloud, which brings some new competition to AWS, Azure, Cloud Foundry, and other cloud services.  Amazon Web Services also continues to keep ahead of the curve by trying to attract Windows developers with updates to a couple of it's services.  Hope you enjoy, and if you've got some cool cloud news, let me know about it by commenting below.
