    Steve Rushen

    I recently tuned in to a GigaOM webinar on the future of the cloud a few weeks back. Key topics discussed were what’s driving cloud adoption in Europe and whether Europe can truly build a vibrant cloud ecosystem. It was an interesting debate, which got me thinking: We listen to the likes of Gartner and other analysts on what the future will bring for cloud, but what do you as a cloud user or vendor really think about this?
