  • Amazon's AWS And The Public Cloud Paradox [View article]
    JU: good point. A hybrid cloud requires a hybrid infrastructure or else it is a "two car garage" of two isolated clouds with two unique sets of limited (forms of) agility, protection and scale versus an integrated hybrid cloud. Thanks for the comment! G

  • Hybrid Is A Whole New Cloud [View article]
    Thanks Chris. I think Amazon will eventually embrace the notion of a hybrid cloud and could perhaps become a key driver.

    I think Mirantis will need to give its execs and partners some media relations training. :)

  • Amazon's AWS And The Public Cloud Pigeonhole Problem [View article]
    My apologies. Had a minor error with my submission. I have no stake in Amazon... and AWS is a small portion of their overall business.

  • Amazon's AWS And The Public Cloud Pigeonhole Problem [View article]
    I think you are confusing the points I am making about the public cloud shortcomings today as disagreement with your blog's thesis, which is not the case. I think the point is that hybrid cloud (agility, economics, protection/reliability AND control) is a natural evolution of cloud computing, from the confines of public and private cloud. Cloud is a superior operating model. Yet it has not been embraced by the enterprise to the extent that private cloud and 3rd party colocation, etc has been. Essentially, concerns about SLAs, security... control. Amazon has developed a price-centric service business. Service. That service needs to evolve to cater to enterprise key requirements, which are not just based on costs/price. BTW- excellent points about the evolution from hardware to software-centric.. and eventually service-centric offerings.

  • Amazon's AWS And The Public Cloud Pigeonhole Problem [View article]
    My point was that Amazon could be much more successful if they marketed to enterprise IT versus simply "low cost infrastructure on our terms at a low cost." The private cloud market dwarfs the public cloud market when it comes to the number and size of deployments. Why?
    If you have less control in the public cloud than the private cloud, then cost is a secondary control for many types of apps and services. Secondly if the onboarding of the existing app is risky and costly, then fewer existing apps will be onboarded. Clearly there is a case for Amazon to go hybrid and give enterprises the agility and protection they need with the controls they require.

    I do appreciate your comment. And I do realize that for some apps and many smaller organizations the public cloud is true innovation.

    Yes. Betting against Amazon is a risky move.

    An OpenStack software and service provider... are you asking if they will become an IaaS player?

    I view Openstack as a truer hybrid cloud alternative as it will enable multiple enterprises and service providers to offer their own public clouds. It will expand the market for hybrid cloud software and management solutions. The real OpenStack question is when it will be enterprise-ready. CloudStack is likely further along... and Google has made great progress.

  • Will VMware Or Microsoft Cash In On Hybrid Cloud? [View article]
    Yes... more agility, efficiency, scale and protection (cloud DR) than server virtualization... with no lock-in.

    Hybrid cloud is an entirely new form of cloud computing, where the clouds are integrated with the data center. It will enable a revolution in IT services and solutions, from development and test to disaster recovery/cloud failover, that will drive new levels of speed and scalability and reliability.

    Within IT I believe that it is a legacy from the telecom days. We used to use clouds in diagrams to designate the PSTN (telephone network).

    I've looked at SKYY. Ultimately its about the mix of investments and risks of "cloudwashing" or companies positioning themselves as a cloud play when in fact they have substantial obstacles. Then you get to the "which cloud" issue, discussed in the article. Thanks for your input.

    Keep your eye on the hybrid cloud meme. I think hybrid cloud will be a game changer for IT.

    With VMware's acquisition of Nicira, the future of the network is looking more x86 centric.
