    The problem with CloudBand is that I have yet to see any detail on exactly what it *does* (or will do, when they release it), so this makes the use cases and value proposition somewhat hard to judge. Fortunately I have a meeting scheduled with Alcatel on this topic, so hopefully all will be revealed soon.

    thanks for discussing what we’re doing with CloudBand. what we’re doing is managing the network (wide area) together with distributed cloud nodes (built inside the network) in one platform. this then enables us to optimize both networking resources and to choose the optimal cloud placement too meet the apps SLAs (such as latency, bandwidth, gitter, HA, etc..).

    Additionally, as Krish wrote, lower TCO for chatty applications when they are placed at the edge, a la CDN.

    Dan – happy to dive deeper with you.
