Cloud computing is the outsourcing of hardware, software, and network, allowing us to view and change information through web browsers without knowing or caring where everything including the actual data reside. From a data perspective, I find the Cloud concept fascinating. It is extremely challenging for most organizations to know where their data is and to obtain an enterprise view. What if the data is in the Cloud though? Are we going to need to expand the enterprise view to a universe view if the data can be anywhere? So is this Cloud coming our way a storm cloud gray and ominous, or one of those marshmallow-like fluffy clouds we dream of smearing on a peanut butter sandwich? In other words, is the Cloud going to make our data management jobs easier, harder, or have no impact, and why?
