Experts Warn Of Turbulent Trip To Cloud Computing

Experts Warn Of Turbulent Trip To Cloud Computing

June 14, 2011

When Steve Jobs walked onstage last week to introduce the iCloud, the feeling of anticipation was palpable. Apple's version of "the cloud," he said, would "demote the PC" and usher in the next big revolution.

Jobs said nothing about the cloud-based computing revolution that is already under way the one taking place in the company boardroom and IT department. Google, Amazon and IBM, among others, are serving a burgeoning market for business-oriented cloud services, which offer corporate clients the promise of cost savings and new capabilities.

Experts, however, have concerns for businesses moving to place their sensitive data in the cloud. It's still vulnerable to crashes and attacks and is likely to open up a whole new realm of legal problems.

To say nothing about the what if your Cloud Provider shuts down and there is no plan in place to have your Cloud data transferred to another Cloud Provider.

Nah, they'll raise the price of them because the Mac will have newfangled built in protection when it hooks to the iCloud. No data loss due to iRain.

I'm ready for Cloud, where is my Job ? Must I become a criminal tell the world my goals, get the help to stop doing crime, then and only then I get a Job in IT. It seems working in a Non-IT field, yet having a clean image gets you no where. Time to become a Gangster.

Or you could have authorities seizing servers for investigations - holding everyone's data regardless of guilt or not.

F.B.I. Seizes Web Servers, Knocking Sites Offline -

The F.B.I. seized Web servers in a raid on a data center early Tuesday, causing several Web sites, including those run by the New York publisher Curbed Network, to go offline.

Tip of the iceberg, the more data storage in the cloud, the more this will happen.

Everyone should keep your data backed up and in a safe location.

Wishful thinking

I think that people are overestimating the everyday user's willingness to adopt a completely new form of data storage and transfer. We can argue all day about the benefits and risk of cloud computing, but the harsh reality is that even if the transition occurs, it will probably be slow and non universal.

Some companies and CEOs are progressive, always trying to be on the cutting edge. But many, like the one I work for, are locked into traditional processes and hardware/software that they are familiar with. It's a hard sell to someone who's system is reliably functional, that they should risk all their data and allocate resources to convert to a different form of data storage and networking.

In the end, the cloud, or something very similar will be an accepted reality. But in all likelihood it will not happen as quickly as many are claiming, due to both technical issues, and unforeseen problems.

Beyond corporate transitions which I would think would be hampered with all these hack attacks as of late, they are still enticed by the "cost effective answer" to IT/software needs with "cloud" computing. Little would they know (or possibly care) that their provider also cuts costs...leaving them vulnerable.

Wouldn't the survival of the "cloud" depend on the speed and volume of consumer interest? A slow transition means losing money, wasting resources, time, energy, servers collecting dust....I would guess some cloud providers won't have that kind of patience and the potential for "cloud" start ups would diminish.

sorta like a lemonade stand in the middle of the desert, some people will stop and have a drink, others will pass - and who knows how often someone even shows.

Cloud not realist even in Many European Countries

Hi although i m no Cloud specialist i must join the group of CLOUD - DOUBTERS

and my arguments are pretty firm

I have been travelling a lot and many countries in Eastern Europe like Hungary , Poland , Latvia, Slovakia ,Bulgary and even greece, and many others ( i m not talking about Big Cities and capitals like Budapest - Pest) do not have the infrastructure for maintaining cloud. They don t have it right now and it will take many many years and many Euros or dollars before they are ready for this ... Unfortunetaly they Simply don t have the money

I bought a house in Hungary Jagonak together with my brother as the country is lovely warm very beautiful and filled with nice beautiful people but even getting 1,5 Mpbs was a ****ing nightmare .... I don t think many people here don t realize that 95 % of the world simple isn t ready for Cloud ----

What will cloud be then? A thing for the Richest countries in the world to have and all the others can remain stuck in the past .... ??? Still i believe that Cloud will take a big part of the cake and offcourse a thing for the future there will still be a demand for Servers and hardware to have ---

regards out
