After reading in Computer Weekly "The Hidden Costs of a Private Cloud", I just had to respond. If a private cloud is so expensive, costly, and doesn't deliver capabilities, why has it become one of the fastest selling portfolio items at Carpathia? Even better question - why are Amazon's customers moving to Carpathia to use private clouds?

It’s interesting to watch the evolution of cloud thinking in the Administration, with several agencies taking on the challenge. DISA has been driving the adoption in the DoD with the Rapid Access Computing Environment (RACE), and more recently with initiatives like forge.mil. NASA, with Nebula which is in the process of transitioning from an internal IT project to a pre-release platform available agency-wide, and of course, the GSA's IaaS initiative, awarded to 11 teams just a couple of weeks ago. GSA IaaS will become the commercial platform to deliver cloud services to the government.
