Publisher’s Note: A couple of years ago, my Conference panels on the cloud began looking more deeply into Cloud construction, Cloud security, Cloud infrastructure discontinuities, and, in general, higher-level Cloud questions. Mark Thiele was then, and is today, an important member of this conversation. Last December, I suggested that there would be Cloud catastrophes, causing some introspection, and a splitting between consumer segment use of the Cloud and Enterprise use. Here, Mark examines this issue from the perspective of complexity, and of someone who has been involved in Cloud design from early on. Whether you are a CIO for a Global 500 company or someone who is selling to these folk, Mark’s thoughts on Cloud implementation for the Enterprise will prove useful.
