Do you think smaller players can outmaneuver the big three and make a go off offering public cloud services. Are there any public cloud vendors that are Open Stack compliant. I just scanned the Open Stack sponsor page and did not see Google, Microsoft or Amazon.
Compute power traded as a commodity is an interesting idea. How would that work exactly? What would be the traded medium? That might to too Wild West for folks with sensitive data. A lot of things around the cloud that protect data, assign liability and guarantee uptime are extremely vaulable. I don't see them as tradable items, necessarily. Maybe this would work after years of the cloud showing itself to be reliable and safe. Intriguing, tho...
Interesting observation...the C suite does seem a bit crowded. Much depends on the individual in any C level role although the job title suggests the orientation. I would tend to agree when it comes to many of these big retailers whose credit card data has been hacked. Thing is I bet at least one or two has a CDO. If data is compromised, whatever the CDO does doesn't matter.
is it to transition 350 of a planned 1,000+ employees to an efficient, agile,
responsive, secure, mobile, recoverable virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)? One that can be customized for individual end
users, and managed centrally by a state government agency with limited
financial and labor resources?
