FT.com / Technology / Science - Tech rivals in cloud computing clash

Microsoft and Amazon.com have clashed with IBM and a group of other leading technology companies over an attempt to set some broad technology principles for the coming era of “cloud computing”.

The unusual public spat points to a deeper struggle under way between some of the world’s biggest technology concerns as they try to position themselves for what is expected to be the next big thing in the tech world.

The skirmish “is about personalities, and anxieties about perceptions of leadership” between some of the tech industry’s biggest rivals, said Frank Gillett, an analyst at Forrester Research.
