CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- While cloud computing is bringing enormous power to large and small organizations, the hype around the trend is "over blown," says Forrester VP and Principal Analyst Frank Gillett. I interviewed him on Wednesday afternoon on the MIT campus.

He told me that the whole movement has lead to "cloud envy" with companies branding existing services by "cloud washing" -- using "cloud spray," he says.

Earlier this month he published a report on the subject.

Seems like Oracle CEO Larry Ellison is one of big skeptics over the cloud gazing, as Dan Farber over at CNET News.com writes tonight. Dan moderated a panel on cloud computing earlier this week at Technology Review EmTech conference.

Larry Dignan at ZDNet wrote earlier this month that cloud computing as a term has become meaningless.
