Inaugural "Inside the Cloud" Survey

Appistry and CloudCamp recently released results from the first "Inside the Cloud" survey. Key takeaways were:
  • Amazon perceived as cloud leader, with twice as many votes as Google
  • Infrastructure providers seen as leading the innovation; with apps and business models tied for 2nd place
  • Security, reliability and fulfillment of the scalability promise are most likely to keep cloud developers up at night
  • Cloud most attractive when it is most likely to reduce costs and improve scalability
  • The best-suited app for the cloud is still anybody’s guess
