re: Cloud Myth 101: Cloud Is A Place
My biggest interest is cost as less cost is the primary false opinion people have of Public Cloud services (vs. Private cloud). There isn't a standard Private cloud design (or at least I have never heard of one, anybody knows of one please reply) and I don't think I have ever seen a detailed Private cloud design used to compare against Public Cloud cost. How can Public Cloud be compared to Private when Private is unknown quantity (or done badly). Think about this for a second, there is a major technology (Private / Hybrid Cloud) that promises orders of magnitude less cost, more reliable, more scalable, more efficient then legacy IT practice but there isn't a known standard or definition. There are some Private cloud solutions being sold as such but they are missing major components or badly designed / overpriced.
