IBM issued a news release several months ago that reported the results of a survey measuring system administrator preferences regarding cloud computing services. As it turned out, IBM's cloud services were preferred over those of other providers, the survey found. We began to reflect on the terms "private cloud" versus "public cloud" mentioned in the release and realized the definitions weren't clear to us. So we invited Bruce Otte, IBM senior marketing manager, Enterprise Initiatives, Cloud Computing, to elaborate on the different types of clouds. The results are quite revealing, since cloud technology is still evolving. Following is the first in a two-part edited interview, conducted last August but published here for the first time, in which Otte explains the current state of cloud computing and the jargon that has grown to describe it.
