I sat down at the HP Master the Cloud ( event in Toronto, Canada to answer some Twitter-based questions, talk about the trade show, and listen to some of the fantastic things Victor and his team are working on right now in their incubator ... and it was a really great 20 minutes.  We covered the questions below (posted directly from Twitter, special thanks to all who participated) and talked about technology, the evolution of security, and how organizations can take advantage of this shift as technology turns the corner in a new operating and delivery paradigm.  Is cloud right for everyone?  Probably not.  Is cloud right in every situation?  Probably not.  This is exactly why you need to listen to Victor ... this is definitely a worthwhile way to spend 20 minutes of your time.
