The Intercloud

Within five years we will have dozens of public clouds and thousands of private clouds

Within five years we will have dozens of public clouds and thousands of private clouds.


The intercloud is now taking shape and will be the infrastructure on which the next generation of apps and services will be built. At Cloudscale we have been developing the first intercloud platform - a platform for the world’s realtime apps, with seamless integration from desktop or mobile clients to realtime intercloud analytics.

As more and more major systems vendors launch public clouds, and private clouds rapidly proliferate via “Private Azure”, Eucalyptus and other offerings, it will be interesting to compare the rate of growth of these new intercloud apps and services with those of the web twenty years earlier.
