OK, so I'm on a theme here.
The concepts around private clouds have been introduced and discussed, and there are even a few large enterprises who have declared they're building one.
I'm now very interested in looking at the operational impact -- going from IT topic to IT topic -- and seeing how familiar discussions change radically -- and for the better -- when thinking about private clouds.
The last post was about securing the private cloud; this one's about backup.
And, as we'll see, how we think about something as familiar (and essential) as backup might be up for some wonderful re-thinking in this world.
