Optimization of workflows and processing speed often lead to the discussion of cloud processing. Of course, many traditional mapping projects can be processed using local machines. Networking them to facilitate distributed processing can speed things up even more, but there can be scenarios where cloud processing is desired. It is often thought of as a faster solution, but this is not necessarily the case. While your hardware costs on prem may be lower, they may not be lower than the fees associated with cloud processing. So, this begs the question: is it a good idea to process data in the cloud?
