Yahoo! Establishes Cloud Computing Division (finally!)

Yahoo finally realized it has some valuable assets.

I can't believe it took Yahoo! this long to create a Cloud Computing division. They are easily in the top 5 most impressive infrastructures and maybe will now take advantage of it.

In order to expand its cloud computing capabilities, the Company will form a Cloud Computing & Data Infrastructure Group, charged with developing a computing infrastructure that balances scalability with cost effectiveness.

Yahoo! is making changes to its technology organization, led by Chief Technology Officer Ari Balogh, to better position the company to execute on its strategic priorities. Principal changes are developing a world-class cloud computing and storage infrastructure; rewiring Yahoo! onto common platforms; and creating a stronger partnership between product and engineering teams.
