I have been running mostly in the cloud for the past year. I have a few items I did not put in the cloud such as my accounting program and also my quoting system. With my security background, I do not like my books in the cloud and have to depend on someone else to secure them.  My quoting system does not offer a cloud product yet, but if it ever does I would be willing to look at it.

The thing I have found about cloud solutions is they are much easier to manage and allows you to focus on the things that make you successful.  Not all applications make sense to put to the cloud. Next Month I will discuss the different cloud types as you can also have a cloud that is hosted on your own hardware.
