Leading the day we have GoDaddy and their announcement of the availability of their Cloud Servers and Applications. GoDaddy has been trying to clean up their image and get into more technical hosting, so this follows what I have seen in the recent past. I am not sure if it is a great idea to try to compete with Google and Amazon at this point though. Facebook gives us some interesting research and a cool data visualization in their post about careers running in families. Google Cloud Platform announces some improvements to Google Cloud Launcher, which simplifies running third party applications in the cloud. This is good positioning between Amazon AWS and platforms like Heroku.
