Spinal Tap Model for Cloud Computing….

I came across this model for Cloud Computing at Dell.

Twelve layers? Give me a break. This just strikes me as silly. It’s a hodge podge of business model, management, facilities, abstractions.

Am I to believe that you can overlay a Business Model on top of any combination of the lower levels? Transport on top of Data Management? Huh? I don’t get it.

Jim, couldn’t you have at least stopped at eleven?

Seriously, the ISO Networking Model stack only had seven layers and still 5 & 6 are always collapsed into 7.

IMHO, Leaky Abstractions would be the least of my worries here.

Needs some work.
