One of the challenges with testing applications in the cloud is that it’s difficult to replicate the production environment where those applications will ultimately run. No matter how big the cloud is, the data center where those applications are tested usually bears little resemblance to the data center where the applications will actually end up running.
In a world where real-time data streams are becoming much more common, and with the volume of that data continuing to increase, it makes sense that a framework would be developed to increase the ease at which that data can be processed. Yahoo! S4 isn't the first such framework to be concieved, or even open sourced, but it is likely to massively increase awareness that such frameworks exist, what problems they may help solve and get developers thinking about how they could use the technology and potentially increase the likelihood of somebody moving S4-like capabilities into the cloud and offering it as as service.
