    Very well said!!

    The cloud is about ORCHESTRATION of services – whether they be an elastic platform for internal developers or fault-toleran/elastic, PORTABLE, cloud ready applications for end users/customers.

    Great point about the private cloud. Citrix has been championing a bring your own device methodology, with an infrastructure like yours the possibilities for rapid deployment and elastic growth are amazing. The big benefit to the end user and, specifically, small business will be when the cloud becomes less about individual service delivery and more like purchasing a share of the private cloud you have created. Then the true benefit of “the cloud” will be realized.
