For example: many startups are told to use IT equipment and services such as exchange servers for email and calendar sharing. Now, with services like Google mail, this type of investment is no longer needed. For a small amount per user per year, startups can have corporate-looking email systems and fully integrated calendar sharing.
"Cloud computing lowers the dependency on startup capital and gives the business owner more freedom to focus on generating revenue," Menken said.
In general, cloud computing is any program or service that is run on an Internet connection. The servers and software are taken care of externally, so small business owners don’t have to worry about storage issues in their headquarters.
