It seems these days that every other tech article you read mentions cloud computing. Cloud hosting providers allow projects to easily and quickly expand capacity while offering the prospect of reducing costs. As an emerging field there is a lot of money to be made and lots of vendors are trying to win our business and our wallets.

This talk will compare the major cloud hosting companies and what products and services they offer. Google's App Engine, Amazon's AWS, Rackspace's Cloud Services and Linode will be compared. We will go beyond a mere checklist of features and dive into such topics as Perl support, cost structures, development strategies, underlying architectures, performance and security.

Whether you've decided to move to the cloud or just want to test the waters this talk will help you make your decisions. Every company and project is different and you should have the information to pick the right host for your constraint
