A survey reported in Forbes magazine has confirmed that Cloud services are a massiveThumbs up hit with small businesses. According to the published results, 53% of Amazon Web Service (AWS) users classify as SMEs.

Cloud computing, particularly Amazon’s high availability AWS platform, is often touted as a solution for enterprise-class computing for very large companies. However, the report found that just 4% of AWS users surveyed employed 10,000 or more employees. Amazon Web Services are a rather specialised form of Cloud computing which allows for the development of sophisticated web-based applications. Whilst they probably aren’t of much interest to the majority of SMEs, this is not to say that Cloud Computing has nothing to offer any business.
