    This is the best summary of all those annoying twitter discussions (that I helped making even more annoying).

    With the benefits it offers, cloud service is aptly hailed as the next big thing for enterprise. But it comes with its own set of challenges, though.

    For end-users, connecting to cloud servers requires costly high-speed Internet. Also, it may be essential to choose the kind of data we store on cloud. Some people may not be very comfortable having their medical records on it, for instance. And these outages may not happen every day, but they DO happen.

    Cloud security is a huge issue as well. Remember when Dropbox left ALL accounts open for hours? It may not happen with Amazon but still somebody may try to hack it. A disgruntled employee can read sensitive information stored on cloud.
