Cloud computing is turning into the most in-demand technology, in all its different facets. Think SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, everything as a service. New research from Foundry (formerly IDG Communications) highlights the momentum organizations are undergoing as they adopt more cloud services and infrastructure. Partners will want to take note of the end-user demand, given the channel’s growing involvement in guiding, deploying and managing customers’ cloud environments. (We’ll be talking about cloud computing opportunities for smaller partners, April 11-14, at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo.)

Along similar lines, Prosimo, a vendor built by Viptela’s cofounders, has a new cloud computing platform partners will want to investigate. It’s geared toward resellers and managed services providers.

Next up, you probably know that Google Cloud is a founding member of the new Data Cloud Alliance. We covered that a couple days ago but here we offer a few more details. Channel partners should benefit, albeit in a trickle-down kind of way.

Finally, NetApp, which bought CloudCheckr, just announced another acquisition. FInd out which cloud computing company it’s buying to add to its Spot by NetApp portfolio (where CloudCheckr now resides).

It’s all in the slideshow above.
