Venture capitalist Mark Andreessen weighed in for the big questions on Monday, championing the cloud as the right way to go. He said the cloud will be seen as more stable than on-premises storage.

Andreessen also suggested that the cloud is already safer than most security environments. Any new business should consider going 100 percent cloud from the very start, he said, a trend that his firm, Andreessen Horowitz, sees with most startups in Silicon Valley.

VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger did not agree that in-house I.T. is less secure, saying no cloud service provider can escape government oversight. Gelsinger said, "People who say 'put everything into the cloud' have never met a highly regulated customer."

As for deployment models, Gelsinger advised that the hybrid cloud deployment model is the right path for most I.T. decision makers. A balance of private and public clouds offers a sound approach.

On Tuesday, VMware and Cisco announced that increasing numbers of customers have been using joint private clouds, data centers, and virtual desktop solutions from the two companies to improve on I.T. agility.
