Cloud Attraction Survey

I labeled this blog The Cloud Option because of my belief that the best reason to build an application with a cloud architecture is to manage application demand risk. The cloud option allows you to align application demand with infrastructure supply to protect against a demand forecast that is certain to be inaccurate. While I believe my value hypothesis will prove to be correct in the long term, I think there may be far more basic attractions associated with the near term value driving cloud demand.

With that in mind, I have built a short (12 question) survey that I offer to AWS users (as I believe AWS represents the most successful, high demand implementation of cloud computing by far thus far). If you are a current AWS consumer, please take 2 minutes to fill out the survey. I'll post the results on the blog in a week or two. Thanks for helping me assign value to the cloud option!
