    Article demonstrates complete lack of real world experience

    I have to agree with the question by a previous commentard as to whether this is a school essay.

    The article shows utter lack of any real world experience (at least of any larger corporate environment).

    All in all rather simplistic, rose-tinted view that doesn't really even start to address anything that happens on the datacentre level.
