Some cloud services are aimed at replacing all or portions of traditional IT, while others are positioned to complement existing IT.

The answer, with all technology points set aside, comes down to economics. There is a price to pay for performance. For some applications this can be considered the cost of doing business, or even a business enabler, to buy time when time is money and using a low-cost storage could have a corresponding impact on performance. Storage can be tiered, with the applicable memory or storage technology applied to the task at hand.
