Will Google IaaS offering sweeten the pot for Enterprises?

If the rumours hold true and Google launches an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) at it's Google I/O conference in San Francisco this week, will this propel Google ahead further in the Cloud Space? Amazon still stands strong and Microsoft is catching up...

For developers and current users, there's certainly a rationale for combining Google Apps, AppEngine with an IaaS foundation under the same structure. A good, distributed IaaS solution set could also provide a toolset that's generic and low level enough to address some of the integration, performance and app transition anxieties that we've seen pop up.

With Virtual Private Clouds are gaining momentum as well, it could also put Google in a much stronger position in the Enterprise space - an area that they've had to work hard on so far.

.. and there's that history with MapReduce and Google's own track record with the "Biggest of the Big Data" that can carry a lot of weight - Big Data boom and all..let's hope they blend it all in..
