PHP developers opine that “cloud computing” is over-hyped and vendor-driven

Attendees at the recent ZendCon 2010 PHP conference in Santa, Clara, California, expressed the opinion that even though "cloud computing" is the future; the concept is a highly over-hyped one and is largely vendor-driven.

Despite the fact that the message of cloud computing is being greatly touted by technology vendors, PHP developers did not appear to be in agreement on the advantages of the concept.

The somewhat lukewarm response of the PHP developers to the cloud computing concept came after Zend Technologies CEO Andi Gutmans described the company's cloud computing plans, which involve developing Zend PHP Cloud Platform.

During the course of his presentation, when Gutmans asked the attendees whether cloud computing was a game-changing concept or a mere hype, most of the developers appeared underwhelmed. Later, after his presentation, Gutmans admitted that people were apparently too tired of hearing about cloud computing as there has been "so much talk about it."

Meanwhile, referring to the concept, Phillip Winn, back-end developer for games builder Tapulous, said: "I guess I have a feeling that 10, 15 years from now, maybe we'll all be using this stuff, but right now, it's entirely pushed by vendors."

Furthermore, noting that there did not seem much value in cloud computing, as of now, Winn added: "I don't have a strong opinion. I don't care. It doesn't affect me."
