CSC Cloud: What is Cloud Computing?

http://assets1.csc.com/uk/downloads/Cloud.pdf

CSC provide another Cloud Computing White Paper. Like most other companies they are relying on the “Electricity Utility” analogy in their description of clouds.

The first item on their list of “should you care about the cloud” is “Aligning costs with use – dynamically”. The second item also concerns cost  – “Cutting the TCO”.

Third on their list is innovation, with speed to market fourth, and “keeping things running smoothly” as fifth (clearly a poor premise given its assumption that the Cloud is smoother). Finally their sixth reason relates to collaboration though rather vaguely – “Inspiring people to collaborate in new ways”.

This seems rather interesting – a rather downbeat and qualified reason for going to the cloud without a focus on new opportunities or risks.
