No one really knows what the deal with “private cloud” is. There seems to be a coffin, but as we discuss on this fresh episode of the Software Defined Talk podcast, it’s unclear how far we are from the final nail.
We also discuss HP splitting, HP shutting down their private cloud, a slew of small acquisitions, and Matt Ray’s take on the recent OpenStack Summit in Tokyo.

- HP now split.
- HP’s finally out of the public cloud game: “we will sunset our HP Helion Public Cloud offering on January 31, 2016.” Coté: wow?
- I don’t think anyone expects new entrants into the public cloud market, right? Seems locked with AWS, Azure and Google. All others are “managed cloud” or enterprise cloud gambits. Oracle is not building a giant cloud, though don’t forget IBM!
- IBM buys (Austin-based) Gravitant.
- Solarwinds gets bought.
