It is indeed early days. And, yep, there's no way (either in a recession or not) that IT's going to rewrite all that they have for the cloud. So, an internal cloud's going to require you to be able to use what you have...plus a tool like what you describe to control what's going on. But, instead of requiring us to reach a world where everything is virtualized, that tool you talk about needs to be able to do the types of things you can do in a virtualized world, but act upon all of your IT resources, regardless of whether a resource is physical or virtual.

And, I agree: the interesting part of this is watching how IT orgs are picking up on this. Will continue to update you on what we hear from our (Cassatt) customers.

  • Frequency of Updates
    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
