Re: Public Cloud Services
Good points!

I agree. The cloud does have some negatives such as security and cost, but I think once it gets off the ground people will see how valuable and how many positives the cloud has.

Legacy systems/Business infrastructure
Security is obviously a huge issue, but aren't there also just challenges with legacy infrastructure? Older organizations had to adopt IT systems decades ago, and then additional infrastructure has just been added on over years. Migrating mission critical systems, particularly those that are required 24x7, to the public cloud would be a challenge anyway, but to do it off platforms that are dated and incompatible probably adds another level of concern. The larger organizations will do it they can't really afford not to. But the mid-to-small enterprise might be tempted to just hang in there for as long as possible.

Re: Public Cloud Services
@freehe - While the initial investment might seem like a lot, I think the benefits garnered by public cloud use, in the end, outweigh that initial cost. Which is likely what the larger companies have found and believe. It's likely the smaller companies avoid it more to a lack of capital to make the investment, more than an actual hesitation, or even inability to see the overall benefit.

Public Cloud Services
It is surprising that a small number of companies use public cloud services such they offer many benefits, however I understand the hesistation by companies to implement the service due to security issues, lack of expertise, and the cost to train employees on the use of the cloud.

Re: Public Cloud Market
A "slow bow" is a good way to put it--to me it is a tragedy to see such a pioneer wither away into the dustbin of history slowly

Re: Public Cloud Market
@mpouraryan - I feel like Yahoo is just taking a slow bow out anyway, they are a half rate everything, from email to newsource. Does anyone use them as a search engine? I think I know one person with a yahoo email address and they don't have a technologically savvy bone in their body. You're right though, security is at the heart of it all, and if you can't provide a secure site, you might as well not exist anymore.

Re: Public Cloud Market
I understand that to mitigate the cost of the Yahoo breach, it will exceed what Verizon has agreed to pay for it--as such, where does it all end?

Re: Public Cloud Market
As the Yahoo news continues to sink it, I would underscore how Security is at the heart of it all.  Many of you have seen my thoughts on this over the course of the last number of months.   The Big Three (Facebook; Amazon; Google) get it--but the second and third tier players continue to be challenged--and I can't but wonder whether Yahoo in fact is going to survive this.
