Private cloud is a hot topic right now. Many businesses and organizations are racing to build proof of concepts and put the cloud to work internally. I suspect that we're past the "Why private cloud? Why not public cloud?" questions and we've moved on to the "How?" but perhaps I'm wrong. Maybe we're at a tipping point? Between your questions, our panelists answers, and the ensuing debate, let's find out where we stand.
Our panelists will be:
- Operations Engineer

I work in the Software Standards part of IBM and have been involved in a number of open source projects over the years. While most of my time is spent developing, promoting and implementing standards (mainly Cloud standards), I also hosts soaphub.org - a free browser & xmpp based chatroom which is used by a number of organizations.
