by Abel Avram on May 19, 2009 |

In this virtual panel, InfoQ wants to find out from leading cloud experts what are the benefits brought by cloud computing as well as the constraints in using them, what is better to use, a public or a private cloud, is the cloud interoperability needed, what is the difference between providing infrastructure or a platform, and how can a client enforce regulatory compliance.

  • What’s your take on vendor lock-in and the need for interoperability between cloud platforms?
  • Why would someone choose to use private clouds instead of public ones?
