Cloud computing allows people to deploy services without regard to the exact amount of compute power. The number of servers used can be changed at will and even changed periodically (EG put on extra servers on the weekend if that is when your customers are active). Amazon EC2 is a commercial cloud computing service based on Xen and Linux. There is also potential for similar technologies to be used for non-profit use.Russell Coker is best known for his work on SE Linux. But of recent times most of his paid work has been as a sysadmin.
