Cloud computing - The next best thing for Revit ?

Rent or own software - flying in the clouds- remote access-

There is much more coming- Microsoft is attempting to brand the cloud...
With collaborative packages like Revit there are huge potential gains from wider pipes for data transmission (think intranet 1GB/sec VS direct disk access) - it is a lot faster to reference in other files that aren't being updated, riverbed'ed, pushed or pulled across networks (especially distant ones)

One Major drawback- if the internet is cut or lost- you're stranded and down just as if the power went out.

So best to have several pipelines routed out the front and back of the office in case one gets cut ; )
