The Private Cloud is real and definitely achievable (via The Loose Couple’s Blog)

Another critical element of a truly successful private cloud deployment is service catalog driven “end user self-service provisioning”. In a similar way to how AWS’ Console and prior to that, the ElasticFox plug in for Firefox, made EC2 a much better experience than navigating the service offerings by command line, a true consumerized approach to “empowering users” must include a  simple but intuitive UI that provides authorized users with “point and click” capability to manage their application workloads through the entire lifecycle.

It is great to read industry blogs from the enterprise IT side, who have real experience with private cloud implementation, demanding the kind of solution we are building at ScaleUp. I’m not implying any sort of endorsement – just that we both believe in the same perspective as to what is necessary for enterprise private cloud success.
