Cloud hosting helps keep IT costs downBusinesses can keep their IT costs down by embracing cloud hosting, an expert has suggested.

According to technology commentator Sean Schofield, the pay-as-you-use model can enable firms to keep on top of their IT expenditure.

Writing for Practical Ecommerce, he suggested that such plans offer "a very economical way to host a server" as firms are only charged for the capacity they use.

Outsourcing a variety of IT tasks to a third party provider can also free up IT professionals, allowing them to use their time more effectively, he suggested.

Mr Schofield stated: "Think of these offerings as a utility: You pay for what you use. So if your bandwidth is low one month, you pay less.

"You can also rent these servers by the minute, so if you have a short term need for a server."

Launchpad Europe recently claimed that security issues often influence whether or not organisations choose to adopt cloud technologies.
