    I think small businesses should start thinking about cloud as you never know when disaster will strike. As far as the costing part goes, it's pay per use basis for the resources you use.

    I still know a lot of companies that refuse to go to the cloud. Some small think there will be no real benefit and larger companies don't want to worry about the security. Putting you livelihood into somebody elses hands security wise is a scary thought.

    Cloud is the best adoption a small business can do, for the cost is based on "Pay per user" model and the usage being really simple.

    As with most questions about cost, the best answer to your first query is "it depends," much as @justinwilson07 has indicated (e,g., the amount of data you're storing or moving, the number of users you're signing up, etc.)

    The answer to your second question, about ease of use, is also "it depends" -- specifically, on the user interface and interoperability methods -- but I am more comfortable now than ever when I say that, generally speaking, moving to and using cloud applications is not so bad.

    The best advice I can offer is to study each of your provider alternatives closely to be sure their usability, security, financial solidity, etc. are to your liking, as there is a wide range to choose from.

    A small business moving to cloud is definitely a big change but with obvious benefits. Cloud computing fully utilizes hardware without any wastage of resources. This increases the value of physical server hardware, meaning businesses can do more with less. This leads to invaluable savings in terms of lower installation, maintenance, hardware, upgrade and support costs.It also gives better collaboration, flexibility in terms of resource access and greater integration with other cloud-based providers. Hope this helps!
