It's one thing when every technology executive on the planet is yapping about cloud computing, private clouds and everything in between. It's quite another when Sir Paul McCartney is talking "Band on the Run" and private clouds.
McCartney's library of music, images, artwork, film and videos and masters of his songs will be digitized by Hewlett-Packard and delivered through a private cloud. HP will also design a content management system and deliver select material to McCartney fans.
For HP, the McCartney deal is the first with a major artist. I'm not sure how many cloud deals McCartney will win for HP, but he's certainly one of the more notable reference customers.
