If you grew up with a tech savvy mom, you’re one of the very fortunate. I did not and to this day I find myself repeatedly explaining the most basic computing concepts. If it’s difficult to explain how to move files from a camera onto a computer, how hard do you think it would be to explain the private cloud?

Watch these cloud “experts” struggle to come up with an explanation their mom would understand.
Compare this video the one I shot at VMworld where I asked attendees, “How do you explain virtualization to your mom?”
