During our recent conversation with David Linthicum about the convergence of cloud and SOA, he explained that the cloud should not be looked at as a new architecture, but instead as another option for storing and running services within a SOA, similar to buying a new server or data center. "Don't focus on what has changed, focus on what is the same," said Linthicum. "I think that you'll find cloud computing is a lot less scary that way."

In his new book, Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise, Linthicum provides a step-by-step guide to how cloud computing and SOA can be leveraged together. The pairing may reduce some of SOA's complexity. "What I see is a lot of people that are building service-oriented architectures in the cloud and not even knowing they're doing it," said Linthicum during our interview. We've provided a free excerpt from Linthicum's new book for your perusal.
