    I am the last one to suggest that the HP “Enterprise” Cloud is the best place Enterprise customers should run their apps … having that said “In the next few years, the enterprise will migrate most of its resources to the public cloud and enjoy an advanced, reliable and secure environment” doesn’t buy me.

    I do believe THIS IS MUCH closer to reality:

    Amazon is changing the world but I wonder at what cost? Roughly 10 years on they’re still not making money with AWS. Perhaps this is the cost of a radical paradigm shift that has changed and is changing computing forever. They’re growing like a weed, the 800# gorilla in cloud, but even with commodity servers, storage, and free hypervisors like Xen they’re still not making a dollar on the whole thing. I suppose AWS is an investment for Amazon and given their long-term position and role in the fundamental transformation of how we do infrastructure in retrospect it may appear to be a very small cost indeed.

    You raise some valid concerns. However, HPs approach could actually prove quite beneficial. HP is starting with the best overall equipment available, some of the smartest technical minds, active partnerships with industry leaders like VMware and it continues to build its ever-evolving offering methodically. They are paying close attention to the efficiency rather than making swift (rash) actions that often result in costly outages. Their approach is something more SMBs and enterprises alike should consider in committing resources. The cloud is not a panacea and only yields desired results if your core system is first optimized with a strategic backbone.
