Is Lotus Foundations better than Cloud Computing ?

I've been very quiet for the last six weeks, not because there's nothing to say about Lotus Foundations, but because I've been involved on other projects. This will change over the next month and this blog will start bubbling over again. In the meantime, take a look at this article from Ferris Research...

I think Nick Shelness is right on the money with this one. Cloud Computing might be fine for the large corporates but its a big step into the unknown for the little guy. IMHO most SMB want to see their server physically sitting in the corner of the office where it's permanently accessible and not costing them hosting fees. They might want to arrange an automated fail-over into the Cloud Computing environment if their appliance falls over, but that's probably as far as it goes.
