According to François Déchery, Cloudbees' VP of international business development,
If you are not consuming a service, you are not really simplifying your operations nor reducing costs and, therefore, not realizing the full benefit of the cloud. AnyCloud addresses just that - giving PaaS users the freedom of deployment choice, including on-premise, while still benefiting from a true service offering." -- François Déchery
The creation of AnyCloud was in response to what CloudBees perceived to be an increase in future private cloud development, as well as many companies' unpreparedness for tackling such a project. Thus, AnyCloud tries to give what Cyreille Le Clerc, CTO, Xebia called "compelling choices for our customers, including the option of running inside their own data centers, right next to existing databases"
This may, in fact, be a game changer in the field of private cloud development. But only if it is picked up by the various entities alluded to tin the release announcement, including both the private sector and government. You can find further information about CloudBees AnyCloud here.
