Predictions for 2011 from LinMin

We will start seeing "private cloud on a pallet" from system vendors that includes blade servers, networking gear and third party applications for Portal/service catalog, for orchestration, for provisioning/imaging (LinMin), for virtualization management (e.g. vCenter) and metering/billing.

If the customer already has the hardware, then the same system vendors will sell the integrated software stack ready for installation.

With this software packaging, corporate data centers can easily deploy their own internal clouds, and service providers can more easily put together the infrastructure to provide public cloud services.

This will be the great equalizer vs. people like Amazon or Rackspace who have extensive resources to develop everything in-house.
