In this blog post, let’s take a look at how three founder-CEOs try to explain and tackle different aspects to cloud computing.

Scott McNealy, Co-Founder and Former CEO of Sun Microsystems

“We believe we’re moving out of the Ice Age, the Iron Age, the Industrial Age, the Information Age, to the participation age. You get on the Net and you do stuff. You IM (instant message), you blog, you take pictures, you publish, you podcast, you transact, you distance learn, you telemedicine. You are participating on the Internet, not just viewing stuff. We build the infrastructure that goes in the data center that facilitates the participation age. We build that big friggin’ Webtone switch. It has security, directory, identity, privacy, storage, compute, the whole Web services stack.”

Suresh Sambandam, Founder and CEO of OrangeScape

“In the pre-cloud era, the cost of building software was so high that we often have to define a scope and leave out functionality which we feel doesn’t fetch the ROI for automation. Cloud makes whatever that was previously left out of scope as candidate for automation now! Thanks to simplification, access and affordability brought by IaaS and PaaS.”

Vadim Vladimirskiy, Founder and CEO of Nerdio

“I started the cloud-computing firm Nerdio to transform the way SMB buys & consumes IT. It can be daunting — it requires high expertise, familiarity with lots of tech, and the vetting and testing of lots of vendors. My decision is to make that entire process completely obsolete — you don’t have to worry about OS, storage, etc., it becomes background, handled by someone else. We’re packaging a whole IT system into something that’s easy to consume.”
