    Ben, good to hear your insights from our Forums. My travel schedule prevented me from being at Christchurch, but I was keen to meet folks interested in Cloud.

    As to your questions on the new products and services coming out of Cloud Labs, we’re currently working on a host of industry-focused Cloud solutions, in particular targeing the telcos, governments and financial services. Each of them has its own characteristics which could take advantage of Cloud. We have also developed a Cloud-in-a-box offering which helps a smaller environment to get started on Cloud quickly. Overall, I think products and services to address particular pain points in the current environment would resonate well with the cliente, which would lead them onto a “Cloud journey” and explore other ways to utilize Cloud for their business.
