Cost savings is one of the main motivations for deploying commercial applications in the Cloud. These savings are more pronounced for applications with varying computational needs, like Computational Intelligence (CI) applications. However, continuously deploying, adapting, and decommissioning the provided Cloud resources manually is challenging, and autonomous deployment support is necessary. This paper discusses the specific challenges of CI applications and provide calculations to show that dynamic use of Cloud resources will result in significant cost benefits for CI applications.
