The Hybrid Era: Where Is All the Private Cloud?
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it
seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS,
Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is
all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their
offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers
define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the

Behind every cloud service or cloud-based solution, there are real people...
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers has emerged around cloud computing.
But who are the CEOs & CTOs behind those providers, who are the internal and
external entrepreneurs driving companies involved in the Cloud, who are the
leading engineers, developers, analysts, researchers, marketing
professionals, authors...who, in short, are the people behind the cloud?
This list will be updated weekly between now and November 4-7, 2013, when

At SYS-CON Media we see our inventories are filling up to 100% capacity for
the months of November, December, and January, and we are seeing
better-than-normal RFP activity for the first quarter of 2010.
When I say this, I am comparing the current insertion order activity to the
same period last year. We will be closing 2009 roughly 32% below 2008 in
revenues (far better than any other tech media company), which forced us to
reduce our expenses for the same period by around 40%. Last fall, while the
world was falling apart, we were preparing for a 40%-45% drop in advertising
revenues for 2009. We did better than our worst projections.

Look all around and you can easily see that there is no shortage of press
regarding the promises of cloud computing. Cloud evangelists have touted
cloud computing as the next big thing, a game changer - a disruptive
technology that will spark innovation and revolutionize the way businesses
acquire and deliver IT services. The staggering volume of these sales pitches
is to be expected, considering that cloud computing is at or near the peak of
its hype cycle, but as with any new technology or model, reality will
eventually set in and the public relations blitz will fade. As people
continue to define cloud computing and debate its pros and cons, one thing is
certain - one of the biggest obstacles to widespread cloud computing adoption
will be security.
This article will deal with the security approach for the public cloud as
opposed to a private, hybrid, or community... (more)
