A Walk In The Cloud [Infographic]

At my company we essentially run our own "cloud". Meaning we rent out space at a data center, and use our own server hardware. I mean if you think about it, that is exactly what a cloud service provider is doing. I mean, the word cloud to some people conjures up an idea that these services are provided with magic or something. Um, yeah, no...

A few times a year the idea of moving our infrastructure to the cloud comes up but it always gets shot down because of the monthly cost. I mean when you rent space at a data center you still have to pay a monthly fee, but the equipment and software is yours. With the amount of storage and bandwidth we use it is actually cheaper for us to rent a data center than to rent storage in the mystical cloud.

Anyway, speaking of moving to the cloud I found this interesting inforgraphic from the folks at Trend Micro. Check it out:
