Should work critical applications ever be cloud based?
ttopp 9 weeks ago
I suspect a lot of other people are asking themselves this question after Adobe Creative Cloud was down for over a day. There are a lot of people that missed deadlines because of this, and Adobe forced the subscription, cloud-only model on everyone so there was no fall-back unless you have physical copies of the older software versions. I depend on Google Docs quite a bit, but they have some offline capabilities. Isn't the cloud a poor fit for mission critical applications? If so, why would Adobe CC force everyone into a cloud only model?
