Cloud Panel at Interop

Last week, I participated in a cloud panel at Interop in Las Vegas with Simon Crosby (Citrix) and Randy Rowland (Terremark)

I mostly talked about the Virtualization Journey as a necessary condition to build a private cloud.

Based on what I leanred from customers, I positioned the journey as the mechanism to provide existing applications with the core characteristic of cloud computing, that is

  • Abstraction
  • Pooling
  • Elasticity
  • Management Automation

As I discussed in multiple posts in the past, from a business perspective the journey starts with consolidation and savings, it evolves around business continuity and quality of services and it lands with business agility. From a cloud readiness perspective, it starts with abstration and pooling, then moves to elasticity and management automation.

Here is the video, the panel starts around minute 9
