I have found that the only people excited about Cloud computing is the people trying to sell it (MS, Amazon, etc) and executives / high level managers that are (A) too cheap to buy the necessary hardware themselves, and (B) too dull to understand cloud's limitations. Great examples of the lack of understanding at the executive level: My former CTO drew a network diagram on my desk that had our WAN Routers connecting to the "Cloud" when he truly meant internet / IP connections. This was at a mid-size company making financial software. Now my new CIO is too cheap to buy a single server and is dooming my project to failure by placing it on a Cloud. I say dooming because the network speed, security, and placement of my requested server is extremely important and the Cloud won't provide this.

On a side note, has anyone noticed the Azure commercials from Microsoft that are marketing to the general public? A housewife using the "Cloud" to edit her family photo's. How is the "Cloud" service relevant in this situation, isn't her PC running Windows 7 enough?
