Unfortunately for this one, the answer is up in the clouds.
To me, cloud computing is a privacy issue. I can’t help but think that as soon as everything gets up into the cloud, it’s going to be indexed and searched by the government, or various other organizations for that matter. It’s a principle of personal property and security that just seems out of wack. That, of course, is a personal theory.
As with any other computing system, there are advantages and disadvantages. Here are a few:
Economic (pay for what you need, not more)
Support Response (everything is in a “single” source, it can be accessed quickly)
Consolidation of Information (its all up in the cloud)
No Commitment (pay for needed service)
Security (it’s in the cloud)
Reliability (what if the cloud goes out)
Streamlining (users use thousands of programs…but who really wants to stick to a few?)
CLOUD is out…for now at least.
