The US Department of Energy, which runs the largest supercomputing centers in the country, is using some of the Obama stimulus money to take a gander on how parallel HPC applications might be deployed on cloud-style, virtualized infrastructure instead of on the less malleable parallel supers that the DOE's labs spend big bucks …
Oh, those clouds.
How disappointing. For a second there, I thought they were using the money to research something, you know, something that wouldn't get funding otherwise. Pure optimism, I know.
So, on the bright side, I'm still capable of optimism. And here I thought US politics had burned out that part of my soul, scattered the ashes over a landfill, and built condos over that.
A Ponder for the Weekend

That would elevate it into Most Definite Turing AI BetaTest Territory/Space in the Live Operational Virtual Environment of Cloud with ITs Stratospheric Covers/Cumulative Defence and Security Layers.
An Area which you may like to consider is already Occupied and Administered to by SMART UniVersatile Forces with Immaculately Resourced Assets.

Um, the sunsets were purple and red and yellow and on fire, and the clouds would catch the colors everywhere. That's uh, neat cause I used to look at them all the time, when I was little. You don't see that. You might still see them in the desert.

Sajjad Syed, You may like to consider that it is intelligently designed to be so ...... for reasons which provide stealthy security screens for Relative Practical Invisibility.
Simple - it's going to get halfway there, after great expense and hardship, and then take a spear in the chest and die horribly.
