Description (last modified by amontero)

Some use cases for Tahoe-LAFS would appeal to enterprise architects, CIOs, and other roles with less technical savvy.

This ticket is fulfilled when there's a slick document that contrasts an enterprise use case with similar competing technologies.

An example consideration for the intended audience is PCI DSS compliance, a standard many security officers must addrress. A document describing what challenges a deployment of Tahoe-LAFS would face for PCI auditing would lower barriers to adoption for many online business applications.


See also an example criticism of ec2+s3 to understand the target audience:

What would it take to close this ticket? I think it is too general to close -- the docs will always need to be improved for various audience. How about if we replace this ticket with "Write a document describing Tahoe-LAFS for PCI DSS compliance purposes"? Is that a reasonable task to set for ourselves?
