What are the benefits of virtual memory in cloud computing compare to a personal computer?

I guess the answers may be:
Cloud computing uses virtual memory to deliver cost saving by reducing power and cooling.

  1. The two aren't directly comparable.
  2. There are no differences in virtual memory in a cloud vs local. Virtual memory is just a host (local or cloud) using some device besides RAM to store program and data. From a performance stand point, virtual memory is BAD because it is slow. The term for utilizing virtual memory is "swapping" Swapping is very slow compared to fitting everything into RAM.
