Re: Retraining?
We talked with the head of Bank of America's global infrastructure (David Reilly) about the skills he'll need in tomorrow's datacenter, and he talked about needing more software-centric infrastructure pros. An excerpt: 

Changing to a private cloud architecture and a software-centric datacenter will require different skills. Infrastructure pros today define themselves by the gear they run: "I run my company's million-port Cisco network," or "I manage our 50,000 servers." In a cloud model, as those technical silos get blown away, infrastructure pros will need more software skills. "The infrastructure professional will look a lot more like the software development professional," Reilly says.
