I Hate “Cloud Computing”

by on February 6, 2009 · 18 comments

I hate the term “cloud computing” because it denies the duties and responsibilities of network operators and software and database managers.

It’s like a George Carlin bit: “I didn’t breach the data. The cloud did it! It was out in the cloud! How did the government get my private data? It got it from the cloud. The cloud gave the government the data . . . .”

    How does the term “cloud computing” deny the responsibility of network operators and database managers? If anything, it puts even more responsibility on network operators. All of a sudden they're dealing with business that have far more money (and lawyers) than individual customers. The way I see it, being responsible for business data will make network operators more careful about giving data to the government, since they'll be beholden to entities that are capable of holding them responsible for any illegal acts.
