So I finally got a quote in BusinessWeek (see > Amazon Takes On IBM, Oracle, and HP), but my quote is terrible and totally out of context.
"I'm not seeing anyone bet the farm on mission-critical applications yet," says Reuven Cohen, CEO of Enomaly, which uses Amazon's computing power to offer tech services to corporate customers.I spoke to Peter Burrows for almost an hour and thats my quote? First of all, Amazon Web Services are great. A lot of companies are "betting the farm" on AWS including us. My quote is taken completely out of context and doesn't do myself, AWS or Cloud computing as a whole justice. Yes, there are some concerns to using remote systems, but they're the same as any remote service like web hosting or SaaS. Why would you buy a whole lot of server hardware and have it sit idle when you could instantly tap into a utility such as Amazon EC2..
Next time I'll be more careful!
