Clouds, shoulders and Wikileaks

Written on December 16, 2010 by Marta Domínguez in The Global Business of Technology

Wikileaks case has proved that Internet is instrumental to run a business wherever your boss is (country, office or jail). A fast internet connection to keep their business, that of making information from the governments public to selected journalists, is sufficient. This is because the internet website is on the big shoulders of a group of interconnected servers, a diffuse concept which is being dubbed “the cloud”. Events and prosecution of Wikileaks CEO Assange by Swedish courts on a charge non-related to his enterprise endeavour did have an effect on the well functioning of Wikileaks when on December 1 Amazon turned the servers hosting Wikileaks material off their cloud (following a previous time of ongoing threats against major sites by pro-Wikileak activists)

Most companies and enterprises are not Wikileaks and then should be pretty safe that their correspondent clouds are doing their job safely and efficiently no matter what. Or should they worry?

Strikingly IT professionals seem to be unsure of all cloud services that their firms have. That is, if a crisis breaks they will be in hard trouble to put up together a plan about which services are affected and, most importantly, what the impact is in customer care, production of services, distribution, human operation or, even, employee daily activities.

Larger companies Amazon, Google or IBM, have made of security of data and availability high standards so that many firms in different sectors not necessarily technological can trust the piece of cloud they use from them. But it is the same in every part of the world? Are companies to expect the same level of service in other geographies outside US and Europe? When should multiple cloud protection be required?

The problem with this is sometimes the nebulose of the cloud may just hind other issues in the operation of that companies. For example which are the shoulders a business sits on.
