Great article. This is why I simply love this cloud technology, It just helps me break from my IT Hassles, its reliable, and its secure. Moreover, its helping organizations to save up to 40% (OPEX and CAPEX) by eliminating the cost of owning traditional PC/Server environments. Also, helps in Increasing energy efficiency by 80% through hosted virtual servers and hosted virtual desktops. Addition to this. cloud computing also eliminates the cost of purchasing, supporting, and upgrading equipment and software. Isn't this so flexible that you pay only for the benefits and applications you need in a low, monthly rate – nothing more.
