Ever wanted to strangle Microsoft? Now Outlook, Skype 'throttle' users amid storm cloud drama


Well, if you will put all your eggs in a fluffy thing somewhere out there that's actually just vapour and nothing solid, and expect 99.999% uptime like any decent on-prem datacenter can provide - good luck to you. The fixation with the cloud, and the funniest part - thinking it can actually save you money, will eventually blow up big time, but by that point, with companies facing multi-year lockins, and having already fired their on-prem IT staff and decommissioned their kit, it will all be too late for them.
