  1. Hi, very interesting video. Now I know the difference between cloud and virtualization. This is one of the most useful videos I’ve seen since it doesn’t only shows the great difference between cloud and virtualization but it doesn’t discriminate in anything. In other words the content of the video is all positive and it is a great start of people would get a chance to see this. Great work! Juan
