FROM THE LPI BLOG - Limitations and Pitfalls of Cloud Computing by Jon 'Maddog' Hall
The cloud isn’t scary anymore and everyone uses it. Even so, cloud services have their limitations and pitfalls. For example, some applications, unless heavily modified, do not do well with high latency. Other applications may have huge network requirements which do not fit “cloud” models well. Applications where the computation is far distant from the data can have excessive communication costs and long latencies.
Consider the case of an application developed to use artificial intelligence to recognize people on a bus. A web cam was placed at the front of the bus and the application tracked people entering and leaving the bus and therefore could calculate the number of seats that were empty.The application was modeled two ways. The first had the entire application living in the cloud with data streaming from the webcam on the bus into the remote application. They built the second model using a small single-board computer running the program on the bus itself. While it communicated with the cloud, it only did so when there were no more seats available or when seats became available after someone left the bus. READ MORE
