Re: If you're not a public cloud provider, you may not be a private cloud supplier either
"Yes, customers can leave whenever they want and can buy competing solutions too, but I was more concerned about how HP viewed this move. Are they OK with customers leaving? Most companies try to retain customers in some capacity. If you start losing customers because they see themselves outgrowing your offerings and don't want the trouble of migrating again in the near future then you're doing your competitors a great service. "
SaneIT, you are right, companies/vendors want to hold back all their customers. It's a trust factor and trust is build upon business and mutual understanding. Am not sure how HP is going to handle such situations.
