More on "Cloud"...
Here's the problem with your premise as I see it: If CEO's and CIO's are willing to accept, approve and sign off on cloud storage as a corporately sanctioned storage solution - despite the inherent data/information security risks - perhaps. But (please correct me as I'd like to be wrong here) what I'm still seeing in the cloud provider fine print are statements akin to "well, we actually own and can, therefore, do what ever we want with your data". "Oh and by the way, we may LOOK at your data at any time since we own it and you're miles away". "...and even though we may delete your data, it's actually may still there - especially since you have no way of *really* knowing one way or the other". Oh yeah one last one: "Trust us with your data - we're as good as Fort Knox". I can't speak for everyone but until issues like this are resolved (which I don't believe they'll ever be - because they never can be), you won't find my John Hancock or any on any corporate data storage policies approving their use.
