| For companies like Red Hat, ISVs have to more fully embrace moving apps that 
| enterprises need to the public cloud, according to Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens.

| between external cloud providers, zero cost of entry and exit for users 
| moving to cloud-based environments, better data mobility, the elimination of

| service that are designed to make finding your files easier. The changes are 
| relatively minor - the "shared with" list has gone away, there's a 
| new "Sharing" menu, and you now have the ability to save your searches - but 
| that hasn't stopped some bloggers from theorizing that the shiny new UI is

| realized, "Google Drive" service, aka "your hard drive in the cloud."
