Flying scot, that's the main disadvantage of any centralized system. But now a day's there are technologies in cloud for redundancy. So if the main system happens to be down, mirror image from redundant machine will take the control and make sure that the services are always up.

"But, I think technology providers should be made aware of the potential challenges associated with Cloud? What's your thought?'

Ann, you are right. They are the first level of peoples to address such challenges and potential risks. They has to be equipped or backup for facing all such challenges at any time.

Another advantage of cloud based computing is the ability to centralize support.  As such, maintenance costs are reduced and revision control should be made easier.  However the whole thing goes "pop" if the hardware or software network goes down.

>>Just how secure is the cloud envronment?<<

I think generally security has had less focus unlike in other innovations.

Executives are asking whether external providers can protect sensitive data and also ensure compliance with regulations about where certain data can be stored and who can access the data.

I'm not surprised that this question has come up - I assume it has been a concern since cloud technology started being marketed. Just how secure is the cloud envronment?

 @ Jacob, you're correct cloud is a big thing. It offers a lot of advantages to enterprises. But, I think technology providers should be made aware of the potential challenges associated with Cloud? What's your thought?

t.alex, cloud has various offerings in IT domain, especially with IaaS, PaaS, SaaS etc. When it coming to non-IT domains like Automotive, Aerospace, supply chain, Electronic etc; as of now limited to certain areas. There is no doubt that these domains may get implement various solutions of cloud in near future.

Anna, now a day's cloud plays a vital role in all most all sectors. Some of the recent implementations are project management, design documentations etc through cloud solutions. There is no doubt that within a couple of days/months, cloud will play its own role in supply and inventory management too.

cloud is the trend

Cloud for storage and for hosting applications is definitely the trend. I can see there is a blurred line between cloud and traditional service. A number of hosting companies simply market their products as cloud-based while it is not very clear how we define 'cloud' in this case. Can we tag something 'cloud' because it is running off from the internet? I think when it comes to CIOs decision, they still have to put all options on the table and decide.
