The sharing movement is in full swing. Innovative “collaborative consumption” companies are helping pool under-utilized assets such homes, boats, cars and then renting them out as services. With the rise of peer-to-peer sharing, it also makes sense that cloud computing—which is compute and storage “resource pooling” and renting—would also gain traction. But just as there are risks in sharing property and other assets, there are also risks in sharing cloud computing infrastructures.
