A survey sponsored by market intelligence firm Blueocean shows that Indians are largely unaware of the concept of cloud computing, although they do use several services without necessarily knowing their significance. Fewer than 10 percent of Indians surveyed were able to articulate what cloud computing is, compared to around 20 percent in the US and Germany, the other countries in which the survey was held. Awareness of the term "cloud computing" was around 40 percent, although adoption of services was as high as 80 percent. Security, privacy and ease of use were major concerns regarding the use of cloud services.
