Subject: Re: [soa-rm] ESBs and cloud services

I have had a few conversation on this topic. A potentially conceptual conflict might be in that ESB is used to be considered as an internal integration mechanism, i.e. all operations and usage was/is controlled by the corporate policies. When we talk about Cloud, we MUST understand that we plan to deal with another business, which is totaly out of our control and which would preserve its own interestest above ours in all situations ( which is normal for any independent business). This leads to a few questions: 
1) do we want to take a risk of giving our integration "heart" into someone's hands?
2) what we would do if communication channel with the Cloud gets down (several cases of Amazone and others going down for a while are known already)?
3) what we want from the Cloud - to place our ESB over there or to utilise "Cloud Integrator/ESB"? Or we want to integrate several Cloud providers and think about hiring a Clouf Integrator provider? [Based on previous publications of Jason Bloomberg and my BLOG, I can say that if a company delegates integration between Cloud Providers to another Cloud provider, the company looks for troubles due to minimal visibility and control over sensitive to stability integration solution. INstead, a compny has to become a "Cloud Broker" and bridge between different Cloud providers. Remember Cloud providers are services - they have individual contracts with the client and do not care about each other.]
I can continue if needed.

Subject: [soa-rm] ESBs and cloud services
Recently, I’ve done work where part of an organization was implementing an ESB and part was looking at the potential for cloud.  Has anyone considered or seen other discussions of how ESBs and cloud are opposite paths or how they might work together?
