A poll was conducted on Linked In, sponsored by Comcast. It asked, “What’s your biggest concern with moving your applications to the cloud?“
Not very scientific granted, but with over 8000 responses, the results are pretty interesting:
I was surprised that more than half of respondents still listed security as the biggest issue. Again this is a rather random survey, but it ended December 15, 2011, so is rather current. Even adding performance and reliability together, they don’t approach security.
If you get a chance click through and read some of the comments as well (there are over 250 of them)l. Very interesting indeed!
