The Cloud approach is gaining ground in organizations as the new standard for IT infrastructure. We mostly see it in its “public” version with offers like Amazon Web Services, Cloud Foundry or Windows Azure. There is however also the emergence of “private” clouds that are operated inside organizations.
The Cloud Computing Development web site has published an interview of Rajesh Ramchandani, who is the founder and VP of Products of CumuLogic. This company was founded by former Sun executives and has the famous James Gosling in its advisory board. In this article, he discusses the strategy of CumuLogic as a provider of private Platform as a Service (PaaS) software for Java. Their product allows multiple private and/or public clouds to be supported at the same time, therefore avoiding cloud (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) vendor lock-in.
