I suddenly feel like a grandpa in the world of smartphones.

What is up with the explosion of cloud services built on top of one another? There seems to be a specialty service now build for everything: Container as a Service (Caas), Database as a Service (DaaS), Software as a Software (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)... I am not going to define them for the sake of not being repetitive (description of each is easily available through simple search).

However, some things sounded so new that even I had to look up what these acronyms stood for.

In spite of them being so new to web hosting industry, I've noticed we have members who have either already invested and expanded into that space, or have plans to do so. I don't presume this is a little investment, so the question is:

Do you think this "everything-as-a-service" trend to continue or is there going to be 1-2 main classes of new infrastructure that will eventually stick as mainstream?

Which one of these cloud computing stacks will actually turn up to be the next big thing?
