Cloud computing, the next bursting bubble?


Cloud computing: I've begun to follow this new market wave a few months ago. I was skeptical concerning all of the big characters announcements shouted out by many 'big' companies. Now that I know a bit more about what it means, well... I'm more skeptical than nine months ago. It had been a fast labor and it seems to me that this child is an old well-known guy: an old friend, with a pacifier within his teeth.
Fortunately today I've discovered that I'm not the only one that has to see this terrific picture every time that somewhere in the world the terms 'cloud computing' are pronounced.
Today I've read The Wrong Cloud, a good white paper from MAYA about the bad sides of cloud computing. I can only suggest you to read it carefully: it could helps you to stay away from the chameleons, they are dangerous, they could burst!
