Cloud Computing or the internet based computing has give rise to so many new jargons such as Software As A Service (SaaS), Platform As A Service (PaaS) etc. Many startups/enterprises have been using Cloud resources such as Amazon EC3, Microsoft Azure etc. Since these Cloud Servers offer exceptional scalability, fault tolerance, pay as you go model, Cloud Computing has become a trend for the last few months/years. But, the reality is, there are few companies that really understand how all these work and if it really offers cost reduction in maintaining Cloud resources over traditional server technology. One of Mckinsey Report says that the Cloud Computing is really expensive and they cautioned us over its costs. So, it is really a debatable question whether the Cloud Computing really helps reduce the cost or just improves flexibilities etc. However, It also depends on how we use Cloud Resource and how we utilize the storage and bandwidth optimally.
