Agnosticism Rules The Cloud

They may use the same technologies for virtualization and automation that are found in off-premises or public clouds. Private and public clouds, both on and off premises, also face many of the same administrative and infrastructure challenges. Just as public clouds need to manage their accounts, private clouds need to be able to allocate costs. Private clouds also need to logically separate co-located tenants and applications, even though they are internal. And frequently, changing workloads and projects are only feasible if the infrastructure is dynamic and highly automated. The bottom line: good cloud architecture needs to be agnostic with respect to delivery point and should work equally well for private as well as public, on-premises and off. The question isnt so much whether to refer to a private cloud as cloud, but whether it is meaningful to make the distinction. Corporate datacenters can be turned into on-premises clouds with all gods the advantages of performance and scalability. My take? A cloud is a cloud, and clouds used in many different ways benefit from common approaches to infrastructure management. <br jesus />
