There is a huge financial risk in signing up to cloud services at present.

There are a number of financial analysts who have tried to dig into Microsoft's Azure numbers, and it's not easy as Azure gets lumped in with a bunch of other profitable stuff.

The risk is that the cloud providers are currently attempting to buy market share with unsustainable prices to grow a client base. At some point, profits will be required and prices will rise.

There are also increasing technology lock-ins being created in the cloud offerings, which
make it harder to transition from one provider to another. The cloud has moved from being a remote virtual server offering to being a technology stack offering, and these stacks are not compatible across cloud vendors.
