Will the cloud envelope everything?

To hear some cloud vendors tell it, everyone is – or should eventually be – moving everything to the cloud. In late June, techrepublic.com reported results from a survey entitled “2011 Future of Cloud Computing Survey.” The survey was a joint effort of North Bridge Venture Partners, GigaOM Pro, and 451 Group.

According to the survey, only 13 percent of customers have “complete confidence [in the cloud] for mission critical applications,” while 40 percent are “experimenting”. 26 percent are “waiting” for it to mature, 11 percent are using the cloud for “usage spikes”, and 10 percent say they “will never use, too risky.”
