From slow batches to fast files, how Microsoft is luring folks into Azure


Still sceptical..

Still sceptical.. I mean, I understand how running in the cloud can speed things up - but the idea of storing business data outside of company controlled computers like that.. I don't think so.

I mean for websites and publicly accessible data? Sure go for it!

But for company data such as accounting details, employee details and any other important details? I don't think so. I mean can you really say with 100% certainty that Microsoft (or Google/Amazon!) will always be able to keep that data safe? That they won't scan it? That they won't profile it? etc?

I don't know. I just feel like it's open to abuse too much.

I'll still be sticking to having our data stored on our own company systems.
