Pure self centred propoganda.
Why do all these evangelists cry that we must move to the cloud?
Easy - because THEY control it and they make money off it.
Sure they can offer cheaper services based on sheer numbers and the cost advantages. However, the instant a client has issues with being unable to work they point at the ISPs and say it is their fault so we are not liable for losses involved.
Me, I prefer to have my clients data onsite - where they can use it without worrying about shonky internet access. For a large client that can afford dedicated data lines (fibre preferably) it is something I would entertain - but it would be on servers controlled by someone I knew and trusted.
