Nate at TechOpsGuys.com says cloud computing is very expensive (compared to doing it in-house). One issue: almost all the providers charge for capacity, not usage. In other words, AWS charges for the number of servers you have active, not how much CPU time, etc each server uses.

It's kind of similar on the CAD end: all of the vendors require you to pay for a block of time (say 3 months, typically at a pretty high price), not for the real amount of time you use it.
