Mark SueCiscoToday, RBC Capital Markets Managing Director, Mark Sue, made the following jaw-dropping statement:

Sue continued:

"Eventually, we could envision Intercloud being a candidate for a spin-out, possibly even a REIT.

"Companies plan to have multiple clouds across the private, public and hybrid landscape. While hybrid clouds are expected to account for ~50% of cloud services in the future, many respondents see utilizing multiple private and public clouds in conjunction with their hybrid strategy. Solutions such as Cisco's Intercloud seek to serve this market by enabling the seamless movement of data among various cloud resources."
