Because of this, applications become location independent and processing power is virtually unlimited. Likewise, it helps reduce bandwidth costs and the personnel costs associated with maintaining a data center. Another big advantage with cloud is the ability to scale quickly, to adapt to changing needs.
Thank-you for all the information and insights on cloud hosting. I think it certainly will be the way of the future. As you say, there are some concerns so far about how secure the cloud hosting options really are. I am sure in time even that will be worked out.
