Nonsense. with a password 'hello hot world trees' where would your 'position' the word 'hot' to crack this password? and what would you use to fill the gap between the other words in the password?
The reality of this kind of crack would require ALL the words AND spaces to be in the correct order to work?
All you have to do to determine if one is better than the other OS wise is to watch the performance monitor on each, all CPU's move together in a Windows world, while CPU's in a Linux system, baring minor differences in the Scheduler will demonstrate scaleability.
And as for Java, Windows overhead seems get into the face of Java more, with regards to controls, at the expense of performance and resource usage.
In general you can expect about 25% to 30% of any compute resource to be consumed by Windows Overhead, compared to Linux.
At no time have I seen WHAT you are trying to accomplish. As a systems guy, first you spec your mission, then detail the pieces/parts needed to reach the mission objectives.
What are you trying to do, and where the hell did you come up with the 'requirements' wish list?
What part of encryption don't you get. There is NO computer based encryption that can not be decrypted by another computer. The reason for crypto is cost. If I encrypt my dental appointment, what value will that be, to apply an hour of compute time to read that? Worth it, not really, multiply that by the hundreds of emails between mothers and son's about the weather that are wasted in the NSA computers? If everyone encrypted their chocolate chip cookie recipes, there would be a huge mushroom cloud rising over the NAS from computers melting down.
The motivation of encryption is to make it TOO expensive for the casual hacker to take the time to perform decryption on. There are encryption methods that a computer can not decrypt, but they are slow human/manual in nature.
And in the end, if you know that the cost barrier has been lowered, you increase the key strength, or algorithm used.
You mention a lot of vague concerns about the 'Cloud' and mash it up with 'Big Data' (great buzz words BTW) but no real focus, or reasons given for the 'FAIL' in your title.
The connection of the Cloud with the Dot.Com bust, is without merit, as they are concerned with two entirely different events/foundations/technologies, That's a Fail, however I do agree with the 'misunderstanding' the cloud thing and hype surrounding it. In my own way the first mission of a consultant dealing with the cloud should be the clarification of the facts surrounding the Cloud, Not the mystification of those features.
Lastly, you don't give any solutions to the possible (though improbable) Cloud Failures to come.
