Hi, I’m Blake Cotton and today I am bringing you Citrix news that’s in the news. Forbes magazine, to be exact. If you’re reading my blog for the first time, I am a member of the Citrix WW Channel Marketing team. This blog serves as a social media forum for lively conversations about Citrix announcements of interest to you. So please chime in with your thoughts, share this information and create some hubbub.

Don’t miss this contributed article by Sameer Dholakia, group VP and general manager of the Cloud Platforms Group, which provides valuable insights about building a cloud computing strategy.

Forbes magazine recently published a contributed article by Citrix Executive Sameer Dholakia as part of the BrandVoice program that has generated nearly 2,000 views and multiple Twitter conversations. Sameer presented three steps for building a private cloud: assessing the workloads that are important to the business, including traditional applications; designing a cloud that can accommodate diverse workloads (cloud-ready and traditional); and recognizing the differences in hardware infrastructure strategies between public clouds such as Amazon Web Services and enterprise clouds.

This article emphasizes that each organization – and its cloud strategy – is unique. Read the full article for valuable insight into the changes a cloud infrastructure will bring to your customers.

Be a part of the hubbub!

The topics that I cover each month in Partner Hubbub are also presented in Citrix Partner News, but I find that an interactive blog format is more effective in spreading the word. It gives each of you the opportunity to express your opinions, ask questions and pass the information along to colleagues or customers.

I hope you’ll add your voice to the “Citrix Partner Hubbub”!
