Veteran WHTer "net" found a thought provoking article suggesting that, with cloud costs and complexity higher than expected, many enterprises are making a U-turn and putting applications and data back in traditional systems. The article goes on to assert that this is a topic that we don't discuss as much as we should: public cloud repatriation. Many regard repatriating data and applications back to enterprise data centers from a public cloud provider as an admission that someone made a big mistake moving the workloads to the cloud in the first place. Do you agree? This a good read for both providers and enterprises, worth 10 minutes of your time, and likely to provoke some interesting comments in the thread.

WebsitePlex asks a simple question: "What are the top 5 payment methods accepted for web hosting?". PayPal and one of the card processing companies are the obvious answers, but which processing companies work best, and where, and which take a dislike to our industry and won't accept applications? What about crypto currencies and wire transfers? The answers will vary dependent on geography since payment handlers, including PayPal, are not available across all countries. If you're planning to add your list of favorites to the thread, please remember to include your location and explain why certain payment processors work better than others for you.
