Cloud Computing Benefits Using different services, cloud computing offers more benefits than traditional computing. For example, data access anytime anywhere benefits cost saving benefits, mobility benefits, scalability, agility, efficiency, environment benefits and flexible security are some of benefits offered by cloud computing (Griffith, 2015). Cloud computing can be used as service rather than hardware based computing, it is cost effective and can be used like utility (Miller, 2009). Another attractive benefit of cloud computing is application processing load shift from local computing to cloud computing. For example using thin client, application can be processed at remote server (Strickland, 2008).
