AWS moved the hypervisor into a smart NIC. Call it 5th generation cloud

Already today storage virtualization and network virtualization on AWS is done on Smart NICs i.e. outside the computer that the tenant is running on.

If AWS counted every time they re-architected their cloud as a "generation" they are probably at 5th generation by now.
