Lew Moorman discusses how Enterprises are moving into the Cloud

Filed in by Angela Bartels | October 14, 2010 12:48 pm

Lew Moorman, President of Cloud at Rackspace and Chief Strategy Officer, recently did an op-ed for SandHill.com[1] discussing how the cloud is enterprise ready. “Cloud computing is for everyone but not for everything,” Lew is often quoted saying and enterprises are slowly discovering which pieces of their IT infrastructure fit in the cloud and which pieces are optimal to keep in-house or hosted on dedicated gear. This hybrid approach allows businesses, small and large, to run more efficiently and save money where appropriate.

Lew goes on to discuss the various cloud definitions, the open-source movement into the cloud and the opportunities available for software vendors.
