Does using cloud services sacrifice my control of my environment or risk the security of my data?

Advancements in virtualization, automation, and network security drastically mitigate concerns that cloud computing locks users
into proprietary systems, does not allow individualized control over solutions, or exposes providers and users to risk by entrusting
data and operations to a third party. Administrators and end users can have direct access and control over cloud-enabled infrastructure,
or enjoy highly customizable computing experiences. Competition within the cloud service market has created a range of industry standard
choices between which enterprises and individuals can easily migrate. And cloud services typically improve user’s IT
security by centralizing storage and providing access to higher-level security tools and strategies at lower costs.
