Caution with Cloud Services !!!
Cloud services, still need to mature like Iaas, Paas, Saas...at current rates not have proper control on how to bill the customer, like insects to attract to flame, any start-ups adopted cloud services of big companies...there is possibility of burn resources due to gaps in their utilization of services ( If not planned properly)... cloud gains bill the companies continuously without proper metering on usage ...bill the customers....Currently there is not proper standards how to charge cloud services and measure utilization basis.
Initial promises of cloud services with showing per hour utilization rates is not that much economical on public clouds ( at present rates) in a long rum ...except owning a private Clouds them selves for cost effectiveness.
There is need to innovation in the cost effective maintenance of smaller distributed data-centers as clouds.
Again the established Big fishes in the cloud industry as unbalanced business advantage on smaller businesses which tends to disadvantage for SMB's further job consolidation/ losses in IT infrastructure and IT maintenance services... these losses which are more you can see on public sector than private sector.
