Re: Fear & Loathing In The Cloud
@anna.beh, I have to wonder what you do to make a statement like "obligated to go to cloud"? Give me one good reason to make your manufacturing shop floor dependent on an internet connection to get product labels printed after they make them? Or look up the next thing they need to make? 

And the cloud is more expensive in almost every case, from the rent you pay for everything to the beefed up WAN connections you need to depend on an internet based service. 

Unless you are playing the private cloud card, which is nothing more than fancy name for the virtualization movement that has been going on since the term "cloud" first came out.

I'm thinking your job is heavily vested in some cloud company to make a statement like that.

security for cloud computing
There needs to be development for security in cloud use so that way businesses can stay more secure. It would also be nice to see some of the main vendors offering certifications for cloud security.

Fear & Loathing In The Cloud
Today it is an obligation for companies to move to the cloud, but is it that security can be guaranteed in the same way? I'm not sure and I understand the fears of the company for the transition to the cloud!

Makes me thing of this wonderful sticker :) and statment Cloud, what could go wrong :)

Its these types of thoughts that really make me think about some of the blind followers who simply think going to cloud will solve all of their enterprise problems.

And finding it might be easier only if you think about all the little things, but at the end its not perfect solution always.
