Datamation LogoOn February 19th, I was invited to join a great Google+ Hangout roundtable to talk about private cloud issues and challenges, with some really smart experts, including:

  • Kurt Milne, Director of CloudOps Marketing, VMware (my ‘Visible Ops – Private Cloud‘ co-author)
  • Gordon Haff, Cloud Evangelist, Red Hat
  • Sam Charrington, Principal Analyst, CloudPulse Strategies
  • Mark Thiele, EVP of Data Center Technology, Switch
  • Andi Mann, VP of Strategic Solutions, CA Technologies

Hosted by James Maguire, managing editor of Datamation, it was streamed live, with the expert panel providing advice about deploying a private cloud, addressing issues like security, costs, and the reasons private cloud fail.
