To state that there a wide range of opinions about cloud computing--from dire predictions about security meltdowns to elated manifestos about tremendous cost savings—would be the understatement of the year. The reason for this array of views on the present and future of cloud computing, particularly in the sphere of HPC, is simple—time, experience, and communication have yet to reveal the true nature of these technologies. We have yet to fully realize not only the true capacity of the cloud, but also the full hosts of risks. After all, to ignore the potential security, privacy, recovery, and other legitimate concerns would be to overlook one of the most prevalent and all-consuming problems with the cloud concept.
