Acadia CEO: Time to lose the word 'Cloud'by
The definition of The Cloud has been used as a beating stick recently, with Larry Ellison and Marc Benioff taking turns to bash each other's businesses, and even Steve Ballmer joining the fray.
However, according to Michael Capellas, CEO of Acadia - whose primary goal is the devlopment and promotion of the Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) - we should drop the term 'Cloud' altogether!
Acadia is the joint venture operation formed by Cisco and EMC, with additional investment from Intel and EMC’s major subsidiary, VMware, and it is intended to help businesses transform their datacentres and help them move towards creating private cloud infrastructures.
