A map of the cloud computing ecosystem

The range of solutions coming on the market for cloud architectures is overwhelming. To make sense of it all, a new map is trying to put the entire universe of choices into a single Javascript app. It lays out the solutions being offered, organized by platforms from major vendors like Amazon, Salesforce, Microsoft, IBM, and Google.

The map is published by Appiro, a professional services firm that sells solutions for the Salesforce platform, and consults on strategy. The map is available at http://www.appirio.com/ecosystem/. At first glance, it is not the most intuitive guide you’ll ever see. But with a few clicks, the picture emerges. The grid lists applications and services within each major platform, and charts companies offering solutions. Some solutions are linked to more information, others are not.

The question is: can they keep it current?
