First up today is the piece claiming that frustrations are mounting with cloud computing services and here. First, I don’t know of any cloud computing provider who can’t or won’t tell you what country your data is stored in. Second, is the inflexibility of some provider’s contracts REALLY a problem with cloud computing? Third, how can you reasonably expect free upgrades and extra services you didn’t contract for?
Next up is whether we need a “cloud computing treaty”. The differences in other nation’s data laws has been an issue to be worked around long before cloud computing came on the scene, so why does this suddenly come up as if it’s a cloud computing problem? (oh yeah, everything gets more attention if you attach the word “cloud” to it!) I think the cloudwashing runneth amok.
