The Cloud is one of many buzzwords in the IT universe. It seems that everything is in the cloud and that's where we find more traditional minded people dislike the cloud.
When you ask them if it is actually more secure to store data and software stationary in their office’s servers, including taking the risks of floods, bushfires or other common natural Australian disasters; they fall silent. Not to mention the hardware costs and server crashes incase there is an unforeseen increased demand of their web services. More and more government departments are using cloud computing services as well.
