EMC, Dell, Pivotal, Microsoft, and … Ford?

Last week was interesting. I spent most of it in Las Vegas at World, which was as much about as it was about itself. There was a ceremonial handoff from Joe Tucci to Michael Dell to lead the new combined entity, but Jeremy Burton was perhaps even more in the spotlight as he outlined the vision.
Much of this vision was about the balance between traditional data center environments and something he called “cloud-native” applications. Substituting “next-gen” for “cloud-native” might be more accurate, as this category included everything from PaaS to to containers to hybrid clouds. Hadoop, Cassandra, and MongoDB were cited as examples as cloud-native, which felt odd. Certainly they are cloud-friendly, but they’re by no means exclusively cloud-centric. See my last post on cloud for more thoughts on this topic.
