Cloud computing is an interesting change in the data center because it simultaneously offers huge benefits and brings huge risks to enterprise IT. The benefits come from providing a much more dynamic and agile computing environment for any application, as well as helping IT move expensive assets outside its own data center. Asset movement is risky however, because it also means moving control of those assets to a third party, and, to a certain extent, shifting responsibility for traditional application performance issues such as response time, bandwidth usage, and availability.
