Private Clouds

Yesterday in eWeek, Chris Preimesberger, provided a very good read in “Why Private Cloud Computing is Beginning to Get Traction“.

“Private cloud computing is a different take on the mainstream version, in that smaller, cloudlike IT systems within a firewall offer similar services, but to a closed internal network. This network may include corporate or division offices, other companies that are also business partners, raw-material suppliers, resellers, production-chain entities and other organizations intimately connected with a corporate mothership.”

I agree with Chris' observations, that "internal" or "private" clouds will begin to take shape. Too many enterprises will *never* outsource their data to a cloud or elsewhere... but they all want the economics and scalability of a cloud.

Companies like Cassatt and others have technologies that take physical and virtual resources and make them behave like a cloud... this is sometimes referred to as Utility Computing (really IaaS). It won't be long before you should be able to get Amazon-like EC2 environments within your own firewall.
