How is it billed?

Beth, I am just wondering, how is this billed?  It is good to have choices of cloud providers.  Does Siemens provide any service in managing this?

How well did the cloud survive Sandy?

Design News has reported on numerous software companies and applications in the cloud.  Hurricane Sandy put the cloud concept to the test; did it pass?  Would the software in this article have been immediately accessable Tuesday October 30th?

I would surmise good cloud design would involve duplication of the cloud on opposite sides of the continent, or even different continents, to survive natural disasters.

I agree, TJ. It makes sense to have cloud servers in a variety of locations -- much like the Internet. But I would guess this depends on the size and sophistication of the software provider. I'm sure there of plenty of cloud services that concentrate their data in one office.
