It is not really economically efficient in the long run. Bad things happen, even without something as drastic unexpected disaster recovery is very costly and often nullifies all the cost-cutting (unless it can be offloaded to someone's else).
Basically this sort of approach is not about efficiency per se but replacing long term planning with short term.

The actual trick is: more than doing it outside the cloud, but someone will aspirationally price it cheaper [bookmark=https://twitter.com/QuinnyPig/status/1278351432274579462]“This thing that I refer to as the ‘cloud paradox,’ the fact that if somebody comes to you and says, ‘How much will it cost me to do this thing in the cloud?’ And you literally can't tell them.” —@getwired, research analyst @DirectionsOnMS
I blame lack of experience primarily of course but still every time I there to try something I find it plain antihuman. It isn't even too bad function wise or reliabilty-wise but it looks like they just hate people as species.
Playing a lot of Shadowrun these days means that I am thinking about how Shadowrun rejects the Minigame as a component of play - when it's explicitly a game about minigames. I don't know how to handle this
My favourite form of horror is the Lost Ship Floating In Space. Alien, Pandorum, and all that magic. Derelict Spaceships are so cool. But also Cube.
I've love to find a way to do horror scenarios where the PCs awaken in a different part of a ship, and slowly need to come together to solve the problem. Each scene will teach things, but they need to find a way to get together.
I *did* start writing a setting that I need to work on more, where the PCs are the leaders of the team of colonial marines coming onto ships that are in the wrong spot. You see, the FTL method was bopping through Hell, which goes wrong is Event Horizon kinda ways.
