I think that the concept of decentralize cloud is very interesting, in particular for its environmentally-friendly aspects. Indeed, the recently adopted Commission Cloud Computing strategy foresees some actions on the "green" aspects of Cloud. Nonetheless, it is necessary to have high-speed broadband in order to enable the use of the decentralised cloud. In addition, security and data protection issues have to be tacked in order to ensure a "green" cloud uptake.
