It's obvious after looking over the pros and cons that the benefits to using the cloud for IP camera video storage are very dependent on the application. If the application requires only a few cameras, doesn't require anything close to real-time video and for the sake of it, 2MP or less resolution cameras then storing video on the cloud might be an option. Other things to consider are, while there may seem to be many advantages to having less hardware involved on site and a potential upfront cost savings, the costs associated with upstream data often outweigh the potential benefits. Consistent internet connection must be a top priority when considering cloud storage.
