If the Cloud is just about cost savings, then it’s pretty dull. It could be about so much more.
The reality behind the cloud is pretty boring. When you look closely at what most people are doing there, it’s all about cost savings.
Take a commodity application from your on-premise servers and push it out to the cloud and your costs (probably) go down.
Few applications are heavily loaded 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so paying only for the compute capacity you need as you need it makes a lot of sense, but it’s hardly exciting.
