There's a new formation of computing resources in the air: the community cloud.

The NYSE Technologies division of NYSE Euronext, in collaboration with VMware and EMC, says it will launch the first "purpose-built" cloud for a specific type of user on July 1.

The Capital Markets Community Platform will provide trading, risk management and other services “on demand” from a cloud of data centers in different parts of the world. The community members: trading firms of all types, agency brokers, hedge funds, institutions, data suppliers and technology vendors.

This slide show gives  the best available early breakdown of what the components of this first example of a community cloud will contain.
