A recent survey, "the future of cloud computing," indicates that just 40 percent of those surveyed are experimenting with possible cloud solutions and approximately 25 percent announced that they are awaiting future developments before cloud computing options can even be considered, believing perceived security threats to be the biggest obstacle.
