Large scale cloud computing services can be pricey and hard to get (or use!) for small business or personal use. Using open-source tools and low-cost web hosting providers, many applications and services that are as good or better than the big guys can be had for only a few dollars a month. This talk discusses what’s available, what to look for in a “cloud” hosting provider, and how to take advantage of these services for personal and business use.
