Amazon Releases Virtual Private Cloud

Amazon's new offering promises to bridge the gap between the cloud and the corporate on-premises network. It's pretty intriguing, actually, given that, in Amazon's model, companies pay only for what they use (like paying for electricity, as this story notes), and they can create chunks of the cloud for themselves that are totally independent from those of other customers. It's a new turn, from what we can tell, on the multi-tenant hosting idea, and many companies skeptical of moving into the cloud might just be tempted to take a look at it.
