Video from “Uncovering the Truthiness About The Cloud Market,” from Telx MarketplaceLIVE

Don Schuett
July 17, 2015

Many analysts and industry experts have been predicting meteoric growth in the cloud industry for several years. Some might even argue that, unlike other overhyped technology trends of the past, the cloud industry has indeed lived up to the hype.

In the newly-released video embedded above, the panel at session #3 of Telx MarketplaceLIVE 2015 addresses the “truthiness” of the cloud market in a unique, open-question panel session.

This session, moderated by Jonathan Atkin, Managing Director at RBC Capital Markets, features the following panelists:

  • Philbert Shih, Managing Director, Structure Research
  • Melanie Posey, Vice President of Research, IDC
  • Al Sadowski, Research Director, Service Providers
  • Sophia Vargas, Analyst Serving Infrastructure & Operations Professionals, Forrester Research

In the panel discussion, the moderator and panelists uncover a number of unique insights, like how the price war may not be as real as advertised. The panelists also tackle issues like the “cheapness” of the public cloud, the value of cloud exchanges, and the commoditization of networks and the public cloud. Have a look above for an entertaining—and revealing—discussion about today’s growing cloud market.
