I agree here.

If you host your own server in your office, you have to worry about offsite backups, Internet connection quality, physical security of your machine and insurance.

Whereas if you rent a server from Amazon Web Service (AWS), you don’t need to worry about all these. If you need a Windows machine, you can easily rent a Windows Server 2012 from AWS and Remote Desktop to that server anytime you want.

AWS has a free usage tier for 1 year for new registrations.

I’ll just jump in and clarify that the free usage tier doesnt apply to windows instances.
