There’s almost no one here at RSA who’s going to argue against the thought of Cloud being overhyped this year. Every other talk seems to be about some aspect of the Cloud, even the talk I’m doing with Mike Dahn tomorrow. But I seem to be a bit of a contrarian, saince I think that the hype is good, since it’s one of the few times that the security concerns around a technology are taking a bigger role than the push by the business to use the technology. In other words, I believe the fact that it’s being overhyped now may mean we actually have a more secure solution over the next couple of years. Or maybe I’m just naive.
David Spark caught up with me yesterday and asked about the hype behind the Cloud. David had been told by a lot of people about the overhype, but I seem to be one of the few who see it as good. Time will tell.
