Today in Cloud

Continuing some of the public/private theme from yesterday, I found this recent ZDNet column from Phil Wainewright interesting. He notes that many of the biggest providers of “public” clouds run them on dedicated infrastructure that might easily be considered “private.” Phil describes it as “the paradox at the heart of ‘public’ cloud provision.” Actually, it’s surely just good sense and the right way to run a particular type of business. I don’t see the problem, in terms of business or in terms of what it means for public and private clouds.
