Beware of Cloud Computing Myths

by: Shahid N. Shah

Tuesday February 23, 2010

The cloud is being discussed everywhere today � and it�s a great offering that almost every government agency and commercial firm is at least thinking about. However, there are lots of myths and untruths about cloud computing that need to be dispelled so that executives and technical team members alike can make proper decisions. The cloud is not going to take over the world and there�s no such thing as �ubiquitous computing� yet. Shahid, an expert in networking and cloud technologies, will discuss what clouds are and aren�t and dispel some of myths and discuss real security and performance issues of the cloud. As an architect for OMB, he is also familiar with the government�s general direction on cloud computing and will share some information on what�s already available in the public domain.  This presentation is an expansion of his presentation in September 2009.  There was such substantial discussion following that presentation that this follow-on was deemed warranted.
