My friends at Slashdot pointed me towards this reference of a good paper on cloud computing. This is probably one of the first decent articles I read about cloud computer. It covers real topics, real questions .. instead of the usual marketing gibberish. I am especially pleased they mention obstacles like “data lock-in” and “data confidentiality and auditability”. I wrote about some of these topics before: here and here.
