The move toward cloud computing as a technology design style continues to accelerate. We all know the expected benefits: reduction in CAPEX, better utilization of resources, improved system availability, better disaster recovery, and flexibility of compute and storage resources. Add in the ability to engineer fine-grained solutions to provide unique opportunities for creating responsive, mission-focused applications and services to meet a wide array of needs, and it sounds like a winning combination.
Considering these and other benefits the question is most often not “Should we use cloud services?” but rather, “How can we best utilize cloud services?”
