IBM has announced CloudBurst, a cloud server platform which offers all the advantages of public cloud computing protocols while allowing customer to maintain complete control and total security

The latest CloudBurst appliance (a preconfigured IBM blade server priced at remarkably specific $207,387) targets development and test. That happens to be same area where cloud computing services — like those offered by and Google — have gotten the most traction in enterprises. WIth everything preconfigured and provisioned for developers, IBM can now turn to its most risk-averse customers and say, “See? Now you can get all the convenience of a platform-style cloud service in a box that you own and control.”

Sounds like a plan.  I want that.
