Cloud Computing

Hey Guys,

Just wondering what your thoughts are on Cloud Computing and if it will ever "Take off"

It's alright if it's a closed network that is run by the company. e.g. I used to be a Regional LAN/WAN Network Manager (and hardware help desk) for a US Federal Government Agency. We had our own (Mainframe based) headquarters computers with data that was accessed by the field offices. This was strictly an internal network and was controlled by our agency. I would not want that data, or if I was running a company network that companies data on anything but my own servers.

I want my "Personal Computer" to be that, not have basically a "dumb terminal" with all the computing and/or database storage somewhere else.

As fireberd said I'd rather have my stuff on my machine where I know just what's happening to it, don't fancy my data floating around who knows where.

I already use some cloud computing. Gmail, google, photobucket, and evernote. Yes, it will take off as people will choose to have their data anywhere and this need will eventually outweigh the current fears of lack of control.

The day Windows switches to Cloud computing only is the day I permanently switch to Linux.

As an option, as stated, we already use it. But as the only means, no thanks. Storing things online, and having tools online are good ideas, but I'd want backups of whatever is stored online. A Guy

It is ok for things like gmail but I will never have anything of any importance to me sitting on a drive other than my own.

Yep, as you guys say, it's "good enough" for throwaway stuff: email, random storage, etc, but I sure wouldn't want to have to rely on it for things I can't afford suddenly not having access to.
