I think it is interesting that so many companies who fought against the idea of working on their data and storing it in the cloud are quickly making a 180. I recently saw a customer who is very secruity minded in terms of their data take steps to doubling the bandwidth of their pipe to the internet so they could start testing cloud services to handle their data. It seems that the road was not as long or slow as once thought.

@bulk, they can't fight the rising tide! The question really is what type of cloud they select. I have to believe that private clouds, either on premises or at a secure hosting center, will remain the choice for sensitive, mission-critical data for a few years yet.

Beth, 

No doubt that private clouds offer more security and control, but as security platforms for public clouds mature I think you will see a slow migration over that way driven by the share overhead of a private cloud vs a public cloud.

I'm sure you're right. I haven't talked to anyone lately about cloud security concerns, other than Collins -- and he suggested likewise. Said he's seeing security, as well as regulatory compliance, become less of sticking points than they were a year or two ago.

I would think that regulation will lag behind security advancments by several years, just due to red tape. That seems to always be the way of things.

@buik, is that to say you think we'll see compliance reforms that account for data being stored and served up off premises?

Beth, I would think so and I think IPv6 will be a big part of what drives it. IPv6 has security features built in that were not avalible in IPv4 which is something "the cloud" will benefit from a great deal. I generally see regulation lags behind technology by a few years, but as IPv6 is deployed in more networks security will become less of an issue and then it will be time for compliance regulations to catch up.

Ah, good old IPv6. That's been a long time in coming... and we're not totally there yet, are we? Even in the US.

Beth, it depends on which end you look at it from. I work on the service provider side so I am seeing much more of it on what would be considered the backbone of the internet and in core routing. so from that perspective its getting there much quicker than the LAN side where office buildings are still primarly IPv4. So, as an example. A large company might have a pretty big network in their office which uses IPv4 but their link out to their service provider is IPv6, a setup like that gives them the flexability to make the migration at a slower pace.

@bulk, so true -- the big carriers have done their part!
