No Clouds in Turkey

I get pitched by a large number of Turkish internet startups, and none of them, not one, so far, have built their application using cloud computing.  I wonder why that is.

It seems to me that the cloud computing service providers like Google App Engine, AWS and 10gen, offer a solid, scalable solution.  On top of this, all of the non-cloud Turkish alternatives are more expensive than their US counterparts.  Yet, you read about companies like drop.io going 100% cloud and I can not name a single Turkish company following suit.

Interesting.
