That's very much apples and spaceships. Utility services (cloud is such a  
deliberately "nebulous" (sic) and misleading team) can be unbeatable on  
price for calculation which is why genome analysis is often done with  
them. And, as Tim says, save you sys admin resources. But SLA's and,  
particularly, data protection and confidentiality can be major issues - a  
lot of EC2-based stuff dumps data on S3 servers which simple tokens for  
protection. Shared hosting or virtual servers are a reasonable alternative  
if you do need greater control of the environment and, at around € 15 / a  
month are very reasonably priced.
