This is very interesting and reinforces the strong interest I’ve been observing with cloud computing.  In addition, when you have access to computing resources that you can rent for the period that you require it, it opens up the potential for crunching large data volumes and numbers. Before cloud computing, you had to purchase all your own infrastructure and amortize it, over say a period of three years. This is now no longer the case.

It will be interesting to see what applications evolve!
