I read the Wired article, and the headline sounds much more provocative than the actual story. The gist of it is that if you have stable computing needs, and aren’t concerned about rapid scalability, there may not be a financial advantage to cloud computing for your company. Makes sense to me. Not every company is going to have the same needs, and what makes sense for some won’t for others. Cloud computing is no different in this respect than any other service or product. I’d consider this “a blip” if that.
