re: 5 Worst Cloud Washers Of 2011
Charlie, having been in the high tech business for over a decade and in the cloud education and evangilation business for the last 3 - 4 years, I can name a few companies that tried to ride the Cloud bandwagon by renaming their product with the word cloud in it. Cloud products and services have to meet the Cloud Characteristics:
Resource elastic providing flexible resources-on-demand
Pay-as-you-go pricing GÇô IaaS
Meeting these criterian is the litmus test.
