    Cloud computing

    Computer hopes lie in the clouds

    "The promise of the cloud is to do away with the need of organizations and individuals to maintain their own computer hardware, software, storage and network gear. The cloud metaphor is used to disguise the complexity of bringing all these pieces together. It's the difference between owning and repairing a car yourself or leasing one with a mechanic to keep it running."

    Cloud Computing has some benefit, but I don't want a 100% Cloud Orientated Computer.

    I don't want my data controlled by someone else.

    So show us your point of view now that you've (assumption) researched and came up with a decent conclusion. Very Happy

    I have already stated my main personal objection to cloud computing above. The other part is that currently bandwidth prices are too high, as is the current transfer speeds. Making it impractical and unaffordable to most people.

    i agree with that............but my main problem is with security issues.........while i applaud the technology for the ability to recycle older comps (not neeeding all the storage space we need now) i really have to say that any company that saves their data to a web server is either very brave or very stupid

    Exactly my point when I say I don't want my data controlled by another entity. If I don't want my (seemingly) useless personal junk controlled by another entity, why would a company want their information stored with another entity? It could essentially break Trade Secrets into nothingness.

    Also, the idea of recycling old computers is [somewhat] stupid -- Sure, a lot of them are good and usefull, but considering that we are getting smaller and smaller [physical] sized machines, the newer machines save more space while not compromising on specs too much.

    Although it's really only user desktops/pc that need to have some appeal to them, servers don't need too much of an desirable appearance -- but the smaller the server machines, the smaller your server room can be and considering that cloud computing is server-dependant, servers are usually stable and fast on systems that are 5 years old anyway, so recycling not strong for a push Razz
