What’s Next For The Cloud? The Intercloud – Forbes

“…it is difficult to predict exactly which Intercloud scenarios will gain the most traction and which ones appear promising but will die on the vine. However, it does seem clear that increasing cloud adoption is driving a rich ecosystem of industry players and initiatives that will usher in the next wave of the cloud. In the same way that online ticketing sites and interline baggage handling enrich the usability of airline services, rather than supplanting them, the Intercloud offers the promise of enhancing the customer benefits of the cloud by complementing and facilitating cloud vendor products and provider services.”
