As Joni Mitchell might have put it, you can look at cloud computing from two sides now. On the one hand they can introduce a worrying uncertainty as to where your data is stored and who might have access to it. And on the other, they can reassure you that everything is secure, available and safely backed up.
This press release from Fujitsu caught my eye today. It announces a cloud-based infrastructure service with a difference: it’s on-shore and it offers improved security, whilst still promising substantial cost savings. Now that’s a cloud service with a silver lining.
