Amazon‘s 50-year-old CTO Werner Vogels has emerged as the right person at the right time and place to guide cloud computing – until now, an emerging technology for early adopters – into the mainstream. He not only understands how to architect a global computing cloud consisting of tens of thousands of servers, but also how to engage CTOs, CIOs, and other professionals at customer companies in a discussion of how that architecture could potentially change the way they approach IT.
We would like to congratulate Vogels on being selected by InformationWeek as Chief Of The Year 2008.
