Why aren't Microsoft and VMware rolling out more private cloud offerings? Treadway is perplexed. VMware has plans to do so, but Treadway just isn't sure what's taken them so long. Microsoft, he says, built Azure as a public cloud service from the start. "It's a simple matter of not prioritizing Azure Private Cloud at the beginning and now it's just terribly difficult," he says.
The issue of neither VMware nor Microsoft providing these services is holding back PaaS adoption overall, he says. For customers to adopt PaaS, they need to have private cloud options, he says, and two of the biggest vendors in the market just aren't supplying it.
