Cloud, From AT&T, IBM

Recently AT&T, IBM announced that they are going to share network to lure more customers to cloud. You can read more about this unique partnership from Bloomberg website : http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-09/at-t-shares-network-with-ibm-to-lure-more-customers-to-the-cloud.html

We think this is a very interesting development in cloud market. The interesting part is the collaboration between a technology company and a phone carrier to bring cloud offerings to the consumer that is happening for a first time I believe.

One of the key issues in public cloud adoption is addressing security concerns of the Organization. Knowing AT&T’s growing medium and enterprise business in providing internet services, this partnership can make “private cloud” more compelling minimizing the concerns on security and connectivity. We foresee more such partnership in future.
