Cloud Computing Confusing to Many: Survey

eWeek: A new survey conducted by Citrix reveals that most people don’t know what cloud computing is. Only 16 percent correctly responded that cloud computing is a computer network to store, access and share data from Internet-connected devices. Other answers included an actual cloud, the sky, something related to the weather, toilet paper, pillow, smoke, outer space, cyber-space, mysterious network, unreliable, security, sadness, relaxed, overused, oh goody a hacker’s dream, storage, movies, money, memory, backup, joy, innovation, drugs, heaven and a place to meet.

Other interesting findings from the survey include the following:

  • 51 percent of respondents believe stormy weather can interfere with cloud computing.
  • 54 percent of respondents claim to never use cloud computing.
  • 95 percent of respondents actually have used the cloud (based on their answers to other questions).
  • 22 percent of respondents say they have pretended to know what the cloud is.
  • 68 percent of respondents say the cloud offers economic benefits.
  • 59 percent of respondents say the “workplace of the future” will exist entirely in the cloud.
