Cloud Disconnect

Symantec has some interesting findings about the cloud and virtualization. While pretty much bullish, the survey finds that cloud and virt projects tend to not meet expectations, especially when it comes to storage virtualization, which I daresay is more complicated than virtualizing servers, apps or desktops. I can't for the life of me understand why storage is so difficult, but it is.

Symantec also found that IT execs are more bullish on the cloud and virt technologies than mainline business execs, such as CEOs and CFOs. This may be a good thing. How many times has a CEO read an article in an airline magazine and comes back with a brand new IT directive? I'm sure you've been there.

Get all the deets here.
