So, the Cloud is starting to leak
I'd love to go on a sarcastic rant about how Manglement is Doing It Wrong Again, but the simple reality is that the Cloud can benefit if one knows exactly why one is intending to use it.
With GitLab, the pros and cons have clearly been extensively studied and the decision made on facts, not marketspeak - which is hardly surprising from a group of computer nerds for whom I'm betting marketspeak does not impress.
So this is not really a failure of the Cloud, just a victory for Reason Over Marketing.
I do find the conclusion very interesting though : paying for sub-par performance because time-share.
That's a point I'm going to have to add to my list of arguments against.
