Clouds eventually move on, like a lot of fads tend to do.

Cloud services are to SQL Server what web services are (or were) to application development. It's an interesting option that fits a specific usage pattern, but I wouldn't bet the farm that most everyone will be doing it five years from now.

Are they? I see cloud database services (SQL Azure) or Beanstalk (AWS) more like web hosting. They are services that will catch on in many places because they're easy. Lots of people still host their own web servers, but many more don't.

The IaaS stuff is more like renting a box in a colo somewhere, without the hassles or procuring hardware or managing power, space, etc. That has caught on pretty well and the way AWS/Azure work, it's much more effective in some ways than doing your own. The reliability is lower for a particular box, but the restart/rebuild is way faster than it would be for many of us.
