Will Cloud Computing haze eventually clear up?

I've tagged it under opinions.

There also are items, such as inertia, that have hindered acceptance. Why would a business want to go through the process of evaluating and then moving all of its IT resources? Think of how much time, effort, and money is involved in items, such as training.

There also are technical challenges, and they usually start with security. Do you want to explain to the auditors how you "protect" data stationed miles away from your employees? How do you really know that another cloud customer cannot access your information?

There are also performance challenges. With cloud computing, another layer of devices is added to your computer infrastructure. Invariably, that means performance degradations.

The cloud model can work in certain cases, mainly in startup companies with no existing infrastructure or new lines of business for existing companies. But it's not a good fit for most applications, never has been and never will be. Consequently, the cloud computing hype will ebb in the coming months, just as it did with its forebearers. The marketing types will then get busy coming up with yet another name for this infrastructure option.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
