I am simply trying to challenge the belief that cloud-like architectures have to remain external to the enterprise. They don’t. I believe it’s inevitable that they will soon find their way into the enterprise, and become a revolutionary paradigm of how *internal* IT infrastructure is operated and managed. With each IT management conversation I’ve had, the concept that I recently put forward is becoming clearer and more inevitable. That an “internal cloud” (call it a cloud architecture or utility computing) will penetrate enterprise datacenters.Ken offers several examples of how cloud technologies are likely to be implemented in enterprise data centers and the advantages they offer (including power management, Cassatt’s focus). If you’re trying to sort out the best way for your company to leverage cloud computing, Ken’s post is essential reading.
