Richard C Stanford: Which kind of Indian? Red dot or whoo-whoo?
fluffy2097: What happens to all your data on a cloud service should they go out of business, or are seized by the FBI or MPAA/RIAA?
Iplaybass: WTF is with the head bobbing from interviewer?
balki1867: There needs to be some sort of debate set up between this guy and Senator Ted Stevens.(For the uninitiated, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aFmib9NUoY )
peasandcarrots: You can't really recover from that kind of eggs-in-a-basket thing. Fifty years from now there will be corporate CEOs in the entertainment and media business who will mistrust cloud computing because of "how they got burned back in 2013 when I was an intern."When it rains, it pours, I guess...
Vaneshi: fluffy2097: If you keep it metaphorical, it's a good question, ones we've already seen played out.Indeed and I'm afraid it'll continue to play out over and over again as people fall for "To The Cloud: it can do EVERYTHING!" just like they fell for "Web2.0: It'll make you an Internet Hero!" in their droves.I'm not saying the cloud doesn't have its uses, I use Dropbox for shunting files between my machines and syncing save games and sure, if I needed more MIPS right the hell now then it's brilliant. But it isn't the panacea to all that ails your companies IT infrastructure.All it takes to knock a data centre off-line is two idiots with an incorrect pipe map, JCB's at just the right locations and a faulty cutout. Ask IBM, happened to them and USF2 in 07. The cutout kept flipping between the battery packs (ohh this one is 99% flip, ohhh it's 98% and THIS one is 99% flip, etc.) and thus the generators never kicked in *poof* dead. /Suggested Johnson Controls cut the battery pack cables with a fire axe...// Even the MD was for it just to get the bastard farm going again on the generators.///Middle management, not so much. Indecisive morons.
