There are no private, public or hybrid clouds—only islands of infrastructure to be consumed

At the root of John Boyd’s “OODA loop” methodology, there is the notion that we need to acknowledge and work with levels of “uncertainty”—gaps that result when applying established models to new and changing contexts[i]. Unfortunately, the networking community—desperate for operational stability—largely ignores these mismatches, designing network and security architectures as if they can dictate how applications are deployed.
