It is very true. Cloud services are not new.

Arena Solutions has been a cloud provider of BOM and change management (core PLM) services since 2000, and man - - back in the early days there was sure a lot of resistance to "on-demand" and "SAAS" products.

With the advent of "cloud" I think the idea of storing data up in the inter-webs is much less scary to the general public. We have seen a huge increase in adoption as people realize that lightweight, easy-to-implement, global solutions make a lot more sense in today's day-and-age.

I think one of the biggest advantage with cloud solution is that there is no initial investment required and companies pay the cloud vendors on the go basis. This can allow companies to invest in their core businesses and not have their capital tied up in IT assets. This gives them more chances of growth.

tools vendor will also benifit significantly from this.

@_hm, very true. Currently tool companies like Cadence,Magma and Synopsys have very few customers because startup's can't afford to buy those tools. Through cloud these tool companies can reach to start-ups as well , which will help them increase their revenue significantly.

How reliable are internet services in India (in most parts of the country)?

@Hospice_Houngbo, internet is very reliable these days, atleast in the urban part of india. I have hardly faced any internet outages in the last 2 years. Moreoever you can get broadband connection at reasonable cost 20$.

@tirlapur:

"If this happens its very good news for Indian industry"

Could start-ups rely on cloud services to reduce running costs? Yes. But if the internet services in the area the company operates from are not reliable, it will have to face other technical problems that may affect its revenue.  How reliable are internet services in India (in most parts of the country)?

Yes, tools vendor will also benifit significantly from this. It is win-win situation. e.g. EE needs to have new tools to design complex 6gbps and higher speed boards.

It is nice to read this. I wish to see more EE vendor - like Cadence, Mentor and other provides application service on cloud.

@_hm, If this happens its very good news for Indian industry. I know many people want's to start their own firm but hesitate to do it because tool costs are very high. If they can get these tools at reduces prices then I am sure we will see boom in the start-ups.

Will cloud service lower the cost to user? For it to be very successful, it has to provide service at very low cost.

I have always been confused with the word "cloud computing". I still am but this article is great to pinpoint the advantages of cloud computing and is future looking. What i find the most attractive features of the cloud computing are the energy saving and cost cutting measures. With the cloud computing in place, i think that the traditional office desk will be more mobile and employee can be connected without physically coming to office. I am concerned about the rent of buying cloud services. Would the cost of cloud service supersede the cost actually buying a hardware and software. The typical lifetime of a PC is about 5-6 year but the software can be upgraded at a small cost? How would this scenario look in clouds?
