Unifying the voice of IT as we head into the cloud

On June 7th, 2011 the Open Data Center Alliance made some significant industry announcements.  In just seven months since formation the organization has quadrupled membership, created 8 usage models that define IT requirements for some of the most pressing challenges in building/deploying clouds, and announced working relationships with leading standards organizations and solutions vendors.  I wrote a blog on what this means to the industry, cloud adoption and Intel on Data Center Knowledge.  Please read through and let me know what opportunities and potential you see from this major industry milestone.

To hear more of my thoughts on this announcement, you can also listen to my podcast at: http://intel.ly/lE1rae or follow me on Twitter @RaejeanneS.
