And SADA to be a step ahead of the game
When the move toward cloud computing started to gather a bigger following that included businesses and not just personal users, it also gathered critics who expressed skepticism. This op-ed piece by Matt Prigge for InfoWorld is an example of one such article advocating a caveat emptor approach to investing in the cloud computing “phenomenon.” Other arguments against moving to the cloud for infrastructure and software as a service included those listed below, among others:
- The cloud would never be secure enough for credit card and other financial transactions.
- The cloud will never be able to handle the complexity of hosting multiple virtual machines in the same infrastructure.
- The cloud will always remain an unwieldy service that is difficult to manage given the sheer number of moving parts.
