Don't care. AND I noticed that there was one upvote for a story that nobody has read. IMO cloud = bad unless you need some temporary processing power and you have taken precautions that your calculations aren't leaking important stuff to people who might be interested.

At €80 for a 1Tb drive that can fit in your pocket and the prevalence of games machines and graphics cards; I really can't see why 'the cloud' would be of interest to anyone....if you need it you have the technical nous to roll your own. Or should do; or you shouldn't be doing that.

Its a survey for IT Professionals, aka people who understand the purpose of Cloud (cough cough Virtualisation!) and its applications...

"Cloud (cough cough Virtualisation!)"

Cloud doesn't necessarily use virtualisation and virtualisation doesn't necessarily mean cloud, they just happen to coincide a lot. A better way to go is to replace the word cloud with infrastructure.

Public infrastructure = public cloud = rented computing

private infrastructure = private cloud = computing you purchased and installed

"A few minutes" ?

Yes, its one page but one /very/ long page.

Honestly; I don't think the description "one page" and "a few minutes" is accurate. More like "10 - 15 minutes".

Free Form Dynamics do "Open Research and Analysis"

Does that mean persuading El Reg to give their surveys a free plug, so they don't have to pay the professionals like Gartner and IDC? Do they trust the results of these surveys?

Re: Free Form Dynamics do "Open Research and Analysis"

Our surveys - we do the commissioning, we commission professionals to do qualitative research and we do trust the results - with the usual provisos of self-selecting participants / online surveys.
