I'm not quite sure I understand the impact of that last statement... "become
less attractive to the business leaders."  Is that a good thing or a bad
thing?  i.e, is going into the public cloud a good thing or a bad thing?
And if business leaders "transform their data centers into a private cloud",
isn't that still a private network?  Or are there additional ramifications
of this, i.e, going the virtualization path and making everything server
