Can cloud computing survive the hype? As the buzz surrounding cloud computing gets ever louder, how can customers locate the signal amidst the noise?  In this presentation, Lew Moorman of Rackspace begins by addressing the hype. "I think everyone is tired of the cloud," says Moorman, President, Cloud and Chief Strategy Officer at Rackspace. "I think there's some cloud fatigue going on. Some people are attaching cloud to their brand and services where it doesn't belong. But I think it is absolutely the new reality, and here's why: It's cheaper, better and more reliable." This video runs about 9 minutes.
