Great suggestions! Not all clouds are created equal, and some are indeed better than traditional data centers when it comes to security. Thanks! G

The cloud is the natural evolution of networking, security and virtualization technology.  For enterprise IT the hybrid cloud operating model is about choice and agility and powerful new forms of app and service delivery.

These are my rants and ramblings, mostly about networking, security and virtualization. I’ve been in more than a thousand briefings with analysts, press and enterprises over the years and I’ve noticed a sizable gap between private whispers and public conversations/coverage when it comes to technology, trends and players.  This is my blog for sharing real time perspectives behind the headlines. None of my posts constitute investment advice. I am the VP WW Marketing at CloudVelox. I was also named as a Power Player in Technology Business Media in 2013.
