I love it when people call me up out of the blue and start to debate whether there is such a thing as a "private cloud". Today is one of those days, I can't help but wonder if these people think that a cloud infrastructure will somehow magically create itself.
Whether it's EC2 or Rackspace, Savvis or Gogrid, at some point there needs to be a single or series software components that enables the creation of the so called "cloud". Recently there seems to be a growing convergence with in the data center combining the best aspects of cloud computing including, SOA, utility, SLA, automation and virtualization into a single unified point of management. (A kind of turn key EC2) In a nutshell this is the opportunity for infrastructure cloud service enablers also know as a "private clouds" such as Enomaly.
So what is a Cloud Service Enabler? The fundamental software building blocks required in the creation of a cloud computing infrastructure.
