Rick Nucci, CTO Dell Boomi, does not pull his punches. For him ‘private cloud’ fails the test:
It’s not cloud because it does not provide the primary and fundamental benefit of cloud; “my computing is delivered to me from someone else’s infrastructure”.
So, he sees it more as a company availing of cloud technologies but within their own infrastructure.
The post itself does not really have much new – but is a reasonable summary of the basic classifications of cloud.
