Readers, say hello to

Dear Readers,

We’re excited to inform you about an upcoming change to our site. On Thursday, January 19th, will officially change to Likewise, the SOA Talk blog will become the Microservices Minute blog. You’ll also see some other changes, such as a new Twitter handle, @MicroservicesTT, and a new RSS feed called “News on microservices and service management.”

Don’t worry — we are not going to stop producing content focused on application development within the enterprise, which in many cases still revolves around concepts like SOA and web services. However, we will give the site and blog a more forward-looking direction heading into the new year. As a vital part of how DevOps teams are accelerating application deployment and change management, microservices has earned increased focus in our coverage.

What’s our mission with the new site? First, we want to focus on the wide breadth of microservices and related application development technologies, such as containers, cloud and APIs. We also want to provide decision makers with an independent perspective on how best to evaluate microservices trends and features. Finally, we want to act as a resource for microservices professionals to gain further knowledge about the technology and interact with other engaged members of the community.

Thanks for your continued readership, and please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions about the site.

This article suggests somehow that a company going to the cloud cant maintain flexibility. This basis is false and makes the entire article not worth the time it was written. Sorry but no cigar on this one for everyone who wants to obviously argue against cloud!!!
Interesting definition of "winning". 
For many the final argument will be "how much is this costing me?". If performance, access, and maintenance are all equal, then at the end of the day, cost will determine what makes sense. Make no mistake, I love the fact that our Jenkins server can run so many systems in parallel, it's a tremendous time saver, but I also get to hear about the bill for that level of parallel speed, and it's not insignificant. Better than a dedicated in-house data center? In many ways, yes, but at the moment, on par with or more expensive than an in-house system. Those prices are coming down though, not so much because provider costs are dropping, but because we're getting smarter about how we use the cloud systems.
