Welcome to the August edition of the Cloud Hosting eNewsletter, which includes an interesting analysis piece from Cloud Gateway that warns that we may be on the verge of ‘peak faith’ in cloud in about a year’s time – a moment to be followed by a (temporary!) reverse in cloud fortunes. According to Justin Day, Managing Director of the consultancy firm, “We’re in the middle of a headlong rush to ‘full cloud’ infrastructures, driven by digital evangelists who convince their leaders that it will all result in amazing business transformation and lower costs. Their faith is absolute: we hear all too frequently that ‘everything must be in the cloud’, but – equally frequently – we see insufficient objective assessment of what the actual business requirement is.”

This is an argument we’ve heard (and indeed made ourselves) on more than one occasion, and I’d be interested to hear if our readers are concerned that the rush to ‘everything cloud’ is indeed taking us all headlong toward impending disaster. And if so, what will it take for the industry to recover? As ever you can email me at the address below.
