    The lack of transparency is currently one of the biggest barriers to enterprise adoption; transparency to a certain extent can be driven by big enterprises demanding SLAs with specific requirements around security, back-up policy etc. Also we demand regular updates from out traditional suppliers during problems; we impose response times for incident handling; regular service reviews.

    Now for an individual user, this is too much but as the enterprise starts to use the cloud; this kind of rigour will help everyone.

    My opinion is that there will be different cloud patterns:

    1. Free cloud (you get what you pay for)
    2. Transparent cloud (++cents your post reqs)
    3. Secure cloud (++cents)
    4. ISDN cloud (++cents for ISDN=I See Dollars Now)

    Actually, ISDN=I Still Don’t KNow … it is poly something

    My opinion for what ++cents mean could be something like 20% for each turn of the crack towards a heavenly (or DEBE=does everything but eat) cloud.

    Obviously, there will be dark forces (initially, hardware and OS forces) that will prevail. As we progress from basic IaaS other dark forces will join in.

    All the same, everything does depend on the app.
