Private cloud passe? I don't think so
David Linthicum at Open Data Center Alliance's Forecast 2014 event in San Francisco said Tues. that Cloud Technology Partners isn't getting requests for consulting on private cloud. Its business now is almost exclusively consulting on use of public cloud. I think that's because the very large clients that it works with have already been through a private cloud phase and now want to maximize what they can do on the public cloud, They are designing new apps for the public cloud, I suspect. Not everyone is at that stage. Many, many companies, to my way of thinking, want the benefits of private cloud.
