Thinking about Cloud possibilities

Cloud computing:

Think about what it means …
Freedom from IT concerns
Freedom from time zone dependencies
Unlimited storage sizes
Unlimited compute power.

Where could this be useful?

Data collaboration. In our company we can now upload and dowload larger docs with self imposed versioning. — result: faster simultaneous workflow.

Central site synchronization: not having a concern about the destination email being incorrectly used. Users always see which is the latest version.

Think about the possibilities for hi compute time calcs like simulation! Removing limits may allow much more advanced simulation AND more optimizations by the sim program.

Pricing will make a difference, but the prices we’ve seen so far appear far lower than local computing. For instance, take a look at Amazon EC2 pricing.
