At Carpathia Hosting, we are starting to see something very interesting happen. Organizations not only want to share data but in some cases, also share computing resources. This is driving a very interesting cloud formation - semi-private clouds. In this model, the organizations share not just data but compute resources to process the data or solve parts of a complex B2B problem. This approach takes out several of the problems of the previous generation extranets and makes the data a whole lot more interesting when you can directly interact with it.
