    To the cloud! I love the infographic. As long as data can be secured, it seems like there are few disadvantages to leveraging cloud computing. Thanks for the stats!

    These surveys are all well and good but what it will come down to in the end is how the users at grass roots level take up and use the technology. There will be the tech head first adopters that will love anything like this and then it may filter down to the man or woman in the street. I expect that Mac users will be a the forefront of this drive to use the cloud when iCloud changes the way that they interact with the computer and the work being done on it. Using things like the amazing iPad to have a document uploaded to the iCloud and then it being pushed out to the other Mac computers that the user owns will give a level of usability that is going to be appreciated by all manner of user.

    I have to say, this seems like a “no duh” set of survey results and conclusion. I wonder how much sponsorship money changed hands to produce this.

    Most common use case is -Dev/ Test scenario (61%) – that is interesting; Infrastructure, not the product per-se?
