James Urquhart on Clouds and Customers

How are customers trying to make sense of cloud computing? The conversation has shifted in recent months, according to James Urquhart, a cloud computing evangelist at Cisco Systems and blogger at The Wisdom of Clouds. James discussed customer trends with Dell’s Barton George at the recent CloudWorld event, including the fact that many companies are unaware that they’re already using cloud services – including one that found 50 employees with expenses from Amazon Web Services. This video runs 7 minutes.

  1. Maybe cloud computing isn't taking off fast enough to suit the boosters. If we declare every data centre a "cloud computer" then the market will certainly grow this year. Thus making all the people who waffle on about Cloud Computing justify their existence. See, 100% of all people who breath oxygen will die. That's a fact.
