That really depends on your usecase. Not all analysis is 'one-shot' and not all businesses are free to upload their data into 'the cloud'.



Not only that, but uploading a 1TiB dataset implies a certain quality of connection which not all businesses want to take on...


As opposed to 10*100GiB that can be uploaded over a 56.6K modem, right? ;)


It's a reasonable cloud vs. on-premise argument. Obviously the scale of the data transfer to a cloud has more to do with the dataset size than the number of instances.
