What’s the real deal on cloud?

An end to fluff and nonsense


What's fluffy, shapeless and over our heads? Cloud hype.

You can watch them get stuck in to the false promises, overcooked claims and vendor-driven nonsense, and tell us what they think the future for cloud technologies is really likely to be - and why the cloud will demand more skills from our data centre managers, not less.

Intel explains why the new Open Data Center Alliance is being driven by customers, not vendors. And Dale explains how the cloud is doing more harm than good.
