What’s not to love about the pay-as-you-go model of cloud computing? Your service price is distributed over a longer period of time, and your customers “repurchase” every month, rather than use a solution they purchased once for years. There are few downsides – except for the added cost of hosting. Once the hosting grows to the point where it becomes a significant cost, the idea of a private cloud sparks. “Why are we paying someone else instead of setting up our own cloud?” Before you act on it, I urge you to rethink the whole cloud computing business model.
