Re: Options
I'm wondering when the pendulum will swing back toward self-hosted clouds. When you figure in the overhead of managing multiple cloud services, you have to wonder when it might be simpler or less complex/costly to do things in-house with the right expertise.

I'm guessing when custom chips are available for nearly any datacenter, tailored for specific performance or energy-use efficiency, that companies might consider a switch back to building their own datacenters?

Or will there be some other hardware/software revolution that will change the cost equations?

I think what's really compelling about this space is that as a technologist there are options. Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Digital Ocean - there's something for everyone out there.
