Perhaps there is no deeper disappointment in life than when a cherished concept fails to produce the desired results. Such is the case with the industry’s notion of private clouds.
Yes, I was seriously seduced early on. Check out this Jan 2009 post where I breathlessly made the case for this new private cloud model. If I wasn't the first person to do so, I was certainly close to being the first.
I argued vigorously for the cause for many years. For me, it was the right answer at the right time.
I hereby publicly admit the error of my ways. The world has changed, and so must I.
Why is it that traditional private clouds have left most IT shops at a dead end?
