In my perusing of various blogs and articles this morning I ran across this one, “Overcoming Fear Of The Cloud

A paragraphs in the article says:

The author, Dan Woods, outlines the following fears that seem to surface about the adoption of cloud computing.  But, it’s his conclusion after wards about what the real fear should be that I found most interesting.  The fears are:

  • Ceding Control
  • Loosing Data
  • Security
  • Complexity
  • Learning Curve
  • Lock-In
  • Job Loss

He then goes on to say, “the biggest fear IT people should have about the cloud is failing to understand its true business value.”  In other words, not learning how to properly apply cloud computing to our business needs could be far more damaging to a person, firm, or company that shying away or waiting to see.

I couldn’t agree more with this statement.  I have personally been involved with cloud computing from it’s earliest beginnings I have used cloud computing computing business and technology models dozens of times to transform, enable, and benefit one company after another for years. I know exactly how powerful it can be and it is not just about the cost/price.  But, more on that later.

nScaled is designed from the ground up to take advantage of cloud computing.  That is one of the important reasons it is able to offer so much for such competitive prices as a result.

That Forbes article was a good read and I’d encourage you to visit the Forbes site and read the full article as it was interesting.
