Virtualization is Not Enough Cloud Computing

Many IT organizations pursue virtualization in the belief that this will create their own private cloud, creating internal speed and efficiency benefits akin to Amazon and Google. But after enjoying server consolidation and other low-hanging fruit, virtualization initiatives typically hit a wall. Virtual sprawl replaces server sprawl. The abstracted and increasingly dynamic nature of virtualization makes it easy for rogue deployments to go undetected as they circumvent security and compliance processes, overwhelm networks, and obscure the root causes of business service problems. Organizations struggle to use virtual resources in more complex, mission-critical applications, as they must be assured, secured, and managed accordingly to their role in business services, something well beyond the capabilities and expertise of virtualization platform specialists.
