Chip Chat: “Hey, you, get off of my cloud”


I haven’t seen as hyped a term in the data center arena since…um…virtualization.  Everyone is talking cloud, promising cloud, and believing cloud.  But what exactly is this thing called cloud? Is it outsourcing services to a provider, the next generation of virtualization, or something completely different?  There are a lot of definitions, and everyone has opinions…strongly held opinions that led me to my Rolling Stones inspired title to this post (yep, those can sing along now).  Chip Chat decided to get to the bottom of the cloud story, so we were excited to spend some time recently with Intel’s queen of the cloud, Raejeanne Skillern.  Check out my conversation with her here.
