    Amazon and Microsoft are quickly becoming the king and queen of cloud computing.

    Here's another case in point: the two of them just won a huge contract with the FAA, led by IT consultant CSC. This contract will consolidate the FCC's data centers, moving data to both Amazon's cloud Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft's cloud, Azure.

    CSC says the contract is worth $108 million out of the gate, and because its a long-term contract, could be worth as much as $1 billion over the next 10 years.

    Doubt IBM will be to upset, they make the processors in the cloud data center's so they'll still get plenty of cash.

    What is IBM up to these days anyway? I never really understood their business model, products, or services once they exited the personal computer/hardware industry.

    Well good for Amazon and Microsoft. Microsoft seems to have fallen off in recent years with their Windows software, which is their main product, so it might be a good idea to focus on other tech areas that are more profitable in order to keep them in the game. With Hewlett-Packard on the rocks, the PC industry might be on it's last legs anyway. Without it, Microsoft's software is pretty much obsolete. Unless they can get it to run on a Mac.

    Those two companies have always been more at the forefront of technology and products, so this doesn't surprise me.
