Submission + - Cloud Computing Doesn't Exist (

jg21 writes: The former founder and CEO of Powersoft, venture capitalist Mitchell Kertzman, claims today that Cloud Computing doesn't exist. His opinion was sought along with that of other software executives still employed full-time in the trenches of Enterprise IT. From his 35,000-foot perch as Managing Director of Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, Kertzman acknowledges that his view is "contrarian." [From the article: "There really is no specific 'cloud computing' sector. I think that the lines between SaaS, PaaS, etc., virtualization and cloud computing are fuzzy and indistinct. To some extent, cloud is an overlay on virtualization, allowing dynamic elasticity for provisioning and deprovisioning, but that doesn't make it a separate sector."]

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
