Today in Cloud

Am I missing something, or is RightScale’s announcement from yesterday very underreported (not that I covered it)? The ability for users to develop their own cloud images and, via RightScale’s service, run them on public clouds seems like a big deal. Setting aside, for the time being, the fact that the cloud should inspire new development methods, certain users still have reasons for wanting to make sure their existing VMs and applications run unchanged in the cloud. A service that enables this capability while still simplifying management processes is noteworthy, at least.
