I have been actively involved in discussing clouds here on my blog, as well as various customer and industry forums for a little over a year.
I've put forward some fairly definitive concepts (e.g. private cloud) as well as had plenty of time to discuss and occasionally defend my position. It's added up to quite a few posts.
I went back to one of the foundational posts I did way back in January, and was surprised as to how well the thinking has held up over time.
Today, I'd like to pick up the discussion where my esteemed Cisco colleagues Chris Hoff and James Urquhart have taken the discussion, as they give me a convenient jumping-off point for some deeper topics I've been itching to get into.
