What aspect of cloud computing is most confusing for beginners?
Cancel
I would say that the understanding that cloud is a new business model and not a technology model can require a change in discussion for several people. One other challenge is understanding that you do not simply move existing applications to the cloud (for example Lift & Shift) and that a move to cloud for existing applications should also ensure that they are properly architected or designed for cloud computing and the guaranteed need for failover.
