This leaves us with an environment in which connectivity gains grow three times faster each year than processing gains. When compounded annually, available bandwidth continues to accelerate and encourages the use of distributed computing in the infrastructure to utilize the 'edges' of the computing infrastructure. We can see this distributed computing trend by simply looking at the history of computing - we've moved from mainframes to client/server to n-tier computing to Web applications and now to Web services. The concept of Web services has certainly taken the technology industry by storm, having now gained as much - if ... (more)
