What is your top cloud computing concern?

Security? Perceived lack of control over data? Application support or compatibility? Something else altogether? (By the way, these are ranked by results from an IDG Research/ Dell Cloud study)

But most importantly, are these concerns rooted in provider deficiencies or other factors, like lack of skills? What do you think? --Paul Calento
