Cloud technology removes physical barriers for developers. They don’t need to wait for physical servers to start or continue work, and they’re not limited to one server per developer, either. Instead, developers can use the same, or lower, budget to spin up a more faithful environment, but tear it down (i.e. stop paying for it) when it’s not needed. Cloud technology also allows your developers to work with multiple environments to test and compare different versions of code at the same time.
Once you have a functional product, the cloud makes it easy to scale to thousands of users without having to build out your own IT infrastructure.
