While many believe that cloud computing will be controlled by big players such as Amazon and Microsoft, EMC's CEO Joe Tucci says that the reality will actually be that one of thousands of smaller, private clouds and hundreds of public ones.

BOSTON - Much of EMC's focus on the first day of the EMC World 2010 show here is on cloud computing, something that many IT vendors, analysts and others are talking about.

However, according to EMC CEO Joe Tucci, the storage giant has a different view of the future of cloud computing.

In his keynote speech here May 10 and a subsequent talk with analysts and reporters, Tucci said that, unlike that of others, EMC's vision of the future is one with many private clouds, rather than there only being handful of vendors like Amazon and Google offering massive public clouds.
