The elephant in the room is that most large organizations feel that
they have as much control over their own IT today as they would have
over a cloud service provider (if not less).  If you're still running
NT in any capacity, there's probably some truth to it.

Even with our own IT infrastructure, most of us face an average gross
data leakage rate of around 10 kbps per TB stored, simply due to hard
drive failures.  This doesn't sound much given today's bandwidths, but
it's actually quite a lot, particularly if you have to assume that
your vendor turns against you and exerts control over the data
transmission (which is technically feasible).
