Whose cloud will reign supreme? And if you’re not sure, does it make sense to work with all of them?
That seems to be Marc Benioff’s strategy: today his Salesforce.com (CRM) annouced a deal with Google (GOOG) to connect Force.com applications to the Google App Engine, Google’s cloud computing service. That follows other Salesforce cross-platform deals like two in November to work with Amazon’s (AMZN) cloud, and Facebook.
But as Salesforce becomes more of a thorn in Microsoft’s (MSFT) side, we’re wondering: Will Salesforce ink a deal with Microsoft’s cloud Azure?
