What is the Cloud?

Earlier this year Dell and Intel did a series of videos around key topics like cloud computing, IT reinvention, the consumerization of IT, social media etc.  Within these there was a mini-series that dealt with cloud computing that I participated in.

Here is the first one that features Dell’s CIO Robin Johnson, John Pereira, Intel’s director of data center and hosting, Forrest Norrod who is the VP and GM of Dell’s server platform group and myself.

Some of the topics we hit on:

  • How cloud relates to grid compute
  • How start-ups and smaller companies leverage the cloud and how that may change as they grow
  • The benefit of velocity and near instantaneous deployment that cloud brings
  • The federal government’s “Cloud First” initiative and how that will promote adoption
  • We’ve only just begun

Pau for now…
