Father of Google Apps: How Google entered the cloud (video)

Touted as the "father of Google Apps," Google's manager of Chrome for Business discusses how Sergey Brin, Larry Page, and Eric Schmidt once rejected the idea of Gmail.

At the GigaOm Net:Work conference in San Francisco, Google's Rajen Sheth talks about how the product development of Gmail inspired Sergey Brin, Larry Page, and Eric Schmidt to embrace cloud computing.

The three at first "soundly rejected the idea" of Gmail because he was pitching it as packaged software, Sheth says. A few months later he came back with the concept of putting Gmail in the cloud.
