The use of Cloud Computing (CC) means threats and risks, which nowadays tend to be reduced but which must be taken into account and managed. But, on the other hand, the CC provides to small and medium companies and startups the advantages and functionalities of technology that they could not otherwise afford.
Vendors of these services offer scalability and flexibility to adapt on the fly (pay as you go) to our needs. They also allow us to get applications available and accessible from anywhere, always. All this with the possibility of hiring not only the infrastructure and software, but also its maintenance.
Accordingly, we can talk about advantages and disadvantages, but the adoption of the CC is a clear competitive advantage for companies and institutions in which they have to embark as soon as possible. Its use is irreversible.
