When added to the cost of a internal server, these factors significantly raise the monthly overall cost to host a server. In the recent UC Berkeley Cloud Computing Paper (which I discussed last week), the RAD Lab estimates that cloud providers have lower costs by 75 to 80 percent vis a vis internal data centers. Some of this advantage is due to purchasing power through volume, some through more efficient management practices, and, dare one say it, because these businesses are managed as profitable enterprises with a strong attention to cost.http://www.cio.com/article/484429/Capex_vs._Opex_Most_People_Miss_the_Point_About_Cloud_Economics
