To cloud or not to cloud.

I know the tendency is leaning toward cloud servers over file servers. Some say the cloud is cheaper and easier to use. I look at it as a way to outsource.

If you are a company that doesn't have the space to house servers or the money to have your own in-house staff then the cloud is for you. If you don't have a trusty Internet service or run a business that need on demand (right now without lag service the you might want to look into getting  a server.

I met someone at an event that has a Internet radio station. This business needs to have something on site. The lag of the Internet can effect them than some business accessing a company spreadsheet. So don't always assume the latest and the most talked about is the way to go. Look at your own situation and get a professional opinion on what is best for you.
