Me too. It's amazing how nobody actually knows what the real definition of the term "cloud" means. Most believe it has to do with replication or being internet based, but it really has to do with the tooling and elasticity:I personally hate the term "cloud"
You'd be surprised how often this happens. I've come across a lot of dodgy SAAS providers. Many of them found cloud as a good way to get around a poor product - they sell it as cloud and then tell you it's cloud, you don't have to worry about anything, but when we have dug deeper, the actual infrastructure underpinning it is often very poor.You guys make it sound that the cloud services of large companies are one pc in a corner. They have data replication across different locations and other fancy things, so I am not sure what you are so worried about.
