Further comments: Often very difficult to change vendors and migrate any existing data. Can be expensive month by month, however the setup costs are low. There are dozens of vendors competing in this space, so prices will decrease. The major benefit is the lack of need to manage the solution, and the immediacy of getting you business data off-site.
