Description

"Having the ability to move data out of the cloud quickly, efficiently, cheaply, and without restriction is a mandatory prerequisite in my opinion to trusting a cloud. In fact, you need the ability to move the data both ways. Moving in cheaply, efficiently, and quickly is often required just to get the work done. And the ability to move out cheaply, efficiently, quickly, and without restriction is the only way to avoid lock-in. Data movement freedom is the most important attribute of an open cloud and a required prerequisite to avoiding provider lock in." (http://perspectives.mvdirona.com/2010/06/10/CloudDataFreedom.aspx)
