Can LAMP Live in the Cloud?

Cloud computing is all the rage and it appears to be the future of computing, with that, can the LAMP stack survive?

The future for the LAMP stack in the cloud is anything but a certainty.

Tech blogger Geva Perry asked the question, "Who will build the LAMP cloud?"

To encourage cloud development, everyone is trying to rebrand their existing technology solution as "cloud-based."

When Zend Technologies landed $9 million in funding last month, Moshe Mor of Greylock Partners said, "Today's enterprises are looking to agile Web and Cloud-based technologies such as PHP to deliver business value better and faster."

So now PHP is a "cloud-based technology," Perry asked.

If cloud computing becomes the de facto delivery system for Web services, will PHP remain a relevant Web technology 10 years from now? And if not, can the LAMP stack survive?

Or perhaps, a better question might be, "Do we need a LAMP cloud?"
