The only real reason I could see using the cloud is if I had a massively parallel simulation I wanted to run, and didn't have the resources to have a server/workstation on site to do it. Even then, I wouldn't want to use sensitive data.

I've been writing some Monte Carlos in Python (yes, I know), and I would like to multithread them and run them on the cloud, but I am afraid of the billing. Don't want a massive credit card bill for satisfying my curiosity about something.
