Asad: I believe I cover both.

SaaS Solutions: they certainly can be interrelated but they are not interdependent. At a minimum, you don't need SaaS to deliver IaaS and you can stand up a SaaS application without using a public cloud service such as AWS. In the two and half years since I wrote this post, I think most people would agree that SaaS has not been "subsumed" by the cloud and in fact it is projected to dwarf both IaaS and PaaS in terms of market size.

Thanks Dave. Appreciate the feedback.
I saw this as well Paul. The vast, vast majority of Cast Iron's business and clients are on its appliance offering - whether deployed on-prem or hosted "virtually" in an ASP model. Cast Iron only announced a cloud offering (meaning multi-tenant) last month as part of OmniConnect. So unless I'm missing something, what WebSphere bought was a predominantly single-tenant (non-SaaS) appliance-based business.
