What if Cloud Computing Fails

I once wrote about the advantages and disadvantages of cloud computing. And I found this insightful article from PC World, that gives us new idea about what may happen if cloud computing fails. You can read the PC World article here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/164946/google_outage_lesson_dont_get_stuck_in_a_cloud.html Take note of the section that talks about an incident where a cloud server company closes abruptly and they did not even give the customers a chance to recover their data.

This is something that companies would have to consider if they are contemplating of going this route.
