High utilization through virtualization and shared resources
Easier administration
Fail-in-place operations model
Benefits that accrue to cloud users include:
On-demand self-service resources provisioning
Centralized appearance of resources
Highly available, horizontally scaled applications
No local backups required
Cloud users can also benefit from new services such as intelligent DNS, which can direct user requests to locations that are using fewer resources.
