Enterprise in the Cloud

  • SLAs do not provide legal ramifications for financial compensation for downtime. Need true 99.9% uptime (at least).
  • Private clouds are still hosted on someone else's server, rack, colo.
  • A lot of data int he cloud is not backed up for another site.
  • What privacy laws govern the areas that contain the cloud providers servers?
  • Enterprise wants to know where their cloud is, but still want to use elastic services.
  • Is data in the cloud protected by law, or is it public? The later will kill enterprise in the cloud demand.
  • Google has fought back saying data over 180 days is not abandoned and thus requires a proper warrant.
