2012 - Cloud Computing benefit? Working from home in the nude to compete with VMware vCloud


Citrix (one of the leading players on the Cloud Computing market) wondered what ordinary people think about Cloud Computing. It interviewed a thousand of ordinary Americans, and here's what they get. Only 16 percent correctly responded that Cloud Computing is a computer network to store, access and share data from Internet-connected devices.  Other answers included: "An actual fluffy white Cloud", "Something related to the weather", "A pillow", "Outer space", "A movie", "A place to meet", "Toilet paper". 54 percent of respondents claim to never use Cloud Computing (although judging by the answers to other questions, 95% of them actually used).

In response to a question about Cloud Computing benefits, 68% said it saves money. 40% said that it is an opportunity to work from home in the nude. 33% - tanning on the beach and accessing computer files at the same time. 25% - keeping 'embarrassing' videos off of their personal hard drive. 35% - dealing with people they'd rather not interact with in person.
