I agree with Dave and offer the following article (in two parts) for 
further background reading. (The second part will be available in 
printed form in Anaheim):

http://www.cisco.com/web/about/ac123/ac147/archived_issues/ipj_12-3/123_cloud1.html

and

http://www.cisco.com/web/about/ac123/ac147/archived_issues/ipj_12-4/124_cloud2.html

(Whole issues can also be downloaded in PDF format).

We now return to our regular scheduled programming and discussions 
about how to get from various airports to Disneyland.
