Adoption issues for cloud computing
Cloud computing allows users to use only a Web browser to receive\ncomputing services via the Internet. Users only need to pay for the\nservices they actually use. It appears that a wide adoption of cloud\ncomputing in the foreseeable future is inevitable, and its adoption\nwill bring about a sea change in the pricing and distribution practices\nfor both software and hardware. There are, however, various issues\nthat will impede adoption of cloud computing. Most of them can be\nsolved. We discuss the status of cloud computing today and various\nadoption issues. We also provide a market prognosis. Â© 2010 ACM.
