Few important points that should have been here by Manish Java

We are struggling with the following:

1. Meeting regulatory and other internal compliance requirements - for example, some industries have certain regulatory requirements that cannot be met on public clouds. Private clouds can fulfill those requirements but then cost becomes a factor.

2. Support for complicated data protection requirements - we needed a hardware key storage device for compliance reasons, which until recently no cloud provider could provide. Amazon now has the support we require so things are looking good.

3. Network latency - Cloud providers have only a few hosting locations. This adds network latency for users accessing applications from a different or distant location. Some cloud providers like Amazon have started addressing these issues by setting up content edge servers closer to end users, which is helping.

4. Full web based control - A number of things, such as, auto-scaling on AWS, are still accessible only using the developer API. This has made it a little difficult for an organization like ours that uses the web based AWS console extensively to take advantage of auto-scaling features provided by AWS. Having these features accessible using the web console would simplify our lives to a great extent.
