Cloud Computing Isn't Necessarily For Everyone
from the down-to-earth dept
So it's interesting to see a CTO (who should have every reason to promote cloud services) say that some applications won't go to the cloud. Apparently, the IT infrastructure supporting large manufacturing plants will "never" move to the cloud. Additionally, the regulatory headaches in the financial industry will probably prevent some financial applications from running on external data centers, too. But it looks like any other application that can have a web interface is fair game for cloud computing.
Are there any other applications that you wouldn't want to put in the cloud? Or will all but the most critical (or maintenance heavy) applications eventually be cloud-based?
