Look, they all see the writing on the wall. CriKit was one of the first truly Desktop Private Clouds, but now even Microsoft has a patent for a 4 node server appliance. THAT is where computing is going for the vast majority of businesses. Some amount of compute and storage on-prem with the rest in the public cloud(s). Software companies have been held back too long by the major hardware players for far too long. And now that all the major hardware guys are well into offering competitive software, there are no competitive DMZ's anymore. Canonical Orange Box, US Micro CriKit Desktop Private Cloud and now VMware MARVIN are just the beginning. Once people realize just how powerful the new class of mini-itx servers really are when running virtualized workloads, there could be a dramatic shift in spending and adoption. Servers the size of a book running multiple virtual machines and handling hundreds of users will be quite enough compute power for a wide swath of SMB and even enterprise computing.
