Cloud has its advantages when the user doesn't want to undertake the
core tasks involved in virtualization and storage. You'll always find a
single dedicated host setup cheaper than cloud, but what you miss is the
high scalability, ha, easy administration and maintenance free
underlying architecture (which is a lot of handle by a one-man team).
