Question by Twzted Love Photography: Web based businesses and cloud computing?
In your opinions what do you think will be some major benefits with the innovations of cloud computing when tied into your web based business? And by this I don’t necessarily mean physical product business, but even things like graphic design companies, freelance companies, anything that offers a applicable service/product accessed through the web.
What about your opinions on the drawbacks and/or disadvantages? I wanna hear your thoughts as this has been a crossroads for me in a self debate whether to move from a physical server to VM.
