5 Worst Cloud Washers Of 2011

[ via Information Week ] 13 Dec

Many vendors want to be cloud vendors. The cloud has come to connote flexibility, scalability, and economy of scale. Wouldn't you want those attributes to be on your side when you're trying to make the sale? There's just one problem.

Despite the fact that some parts of the cloud are loosely defined, not everybody is bringing products to market worthy of the name "cloud." As a matter of fact, there's a lot of cloud washing--renaming existing products, after a few tweaks, with the word cloud inserted.

On Wednesday, Dec. 14, cloud consulting company Appirio will host the Cloudwashies—an "awards" event similar to the Razzies awards for bad movies. 

Here is list of nominees for top cloud washers, as suggested by Charles Babcok of Information Week:
  1. Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud
  2. Lawson Cloud Services
  3. Storage Vendors Who Don't Come Clean
  4. HP Cloud System
  5. Oracle Public Fund

Read full story for details on the five cloud washers listed above. What is your listing?
