Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) with its classical publish-find-bind paradigm have not been affected yet by this emerging trend. This paper reviews this novel technology and tries to identify the paradigm behind it. In particular, the scalability aspect for a cloud enabled 52° North Open Source Web Processing Service is challenged and proven in the exemplary Google Cloud. On this basis, future direction for SDIs and the Cloud Computing paradigm are identified.
