If you’re involved with a web business, are you on the cloud yet? Consider this comment from a partner at Union Ventures. This is Albert Wenger on his blog Continuations:

All of this is great news for startups because it is further driving down the cost of hosting.  At this point I am encouraging everyone who is starting up to write for the cloud from Day One.  In fact, I think it is time to be somewhat suspect of a technical team that is not doing that.

I’m not that involved in the IT and all at Palo Alto Software anymore, but I do know that our Email Center Pro and all of our main websites are up on the Amazon cloud now. The team tells me that it’s a huge improvement in performance, at a lower cost, with a lot more peace of mind.

Seems like startups and smaller companies can’t afford not to.
