Web app hosting as a service?

Kevin Yank opins on the effect services like Google's App Engine may have on web hosting choices. By abstracting away the details of configuring and deploying web apps for a particular host system, services like App Engine and Heroku may give developers more time to concentrate on providing business value (creating applications instead of fighting with servers). The greatest benefit may accrue to independent developers, students and hobby developers, who haven't the time, money or server-fu to set up and administer their own dedicated server, virtual or otherwise.
