The cloud has been incredibly effective at simplifying how applications are built and deployed by eliminating physical constraints. The vision of the software-defined datacenter has been fully realized. By turning the challenge of acquiring and provisioning hardware into a button press, the cloud has eliminated many barriers to new application deployment.
