lca2011 - silver lining

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Pia Waugh is talking about the silve lining of cloud computing. This is a bit of an anti-cloud rant. It's based on her blog post. She was in a group of cloud vendors chatting, and someone made the claim that 'no privacy data will be stored in the cloud'.

She highlighted a lot of issues that she knows that clients (government departments, businesses) need to consider before jumping on the cloud bandwagon, but perhaps don't think about up front (like being able to extract your data out from the cloud if you want to move on to another vendor). Privacy off the data, jurisdiction of things. The blog post I mentioned above is a good overview of what she talked about.
