Three Years of Cloud Predictions I just published a series of 2015 cloud predictions, as have many fellow bloggers.  So to complement these predictions let me offer my 2013 and 2014 predictions, along with 2015.  I'll let you decide which ones I got right and which ones I missed as we look to 2015: Dec 2012: Top Five Cloud Predictions for 2013 Hybrid cloud will enter the hype cycle; AWS will publicly acknowledge the hybrid cloud; traditional premise-bound colocation leaders will lose market share to cloud-enabled colo players; public versus private cloud debates will be rendered meaningless; new hybrid cloud startups and "makeovers" will enter the market. Dec 2013: AWS will Enter Hybrid Cloud Market in 2014 The title speaks for itself, but it also predicts the rise of reInvent as AWS shifts to a more enterprise-friendly product and message. Oct 2014: 2015: A Cloud O... (more)

The Amazon versus VMware Cloud War Reader | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

A series of articles written about the new cloud war between Amazon and VMware has attracted plenty of interest, despite being spread across a few media sites andArchimedius.

Internet of Things to Mature in 2015 | @ThingsExpo [#Cloud #IoT]

The Cloud in 2015: Startup Ecosystem Explosion This is a follow-up blog that is part of a series of 2015 cloud predictions. The first one, entitled When the Walls Come Down, had the following as the central thesis: In 2015 the perceived costs of cloud migration for existing production apps will drop by more than 50%; it will trigger a massive (and fast) market share battle unleashed by unprecedented automation. That takes me to prediction number two: •The development of a new generation of software and service-centric startups will leverage software and robust API integration to o... (more)

Amazon Declares War on VMware | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

I returned from re:Invent last night after three days of what was probably one of the most memorable and impactful trade shows I’ve ever attended. Period. More than 1500 attendee applicants were refused.  The show was packed. This time with more enterprise IT leaders than one might imagine, with most fully committed to getting on Amazon AWS. The attendee drumbeat at our booth was relentless: “We want to move to AWS.” My comment to press and analysts at each briefing: It is clear that re:Invent 2014 is more than a typical trade show; it will be remembered as the point at which Ama...
