One of the largest torrent tracker, Pirate Bay, moves its operation to the cloud. With cloud, Pirate Bay can be in multiple countries and with multiple service providers. This will make it difficult for governments to shut them down.
If one cloud-provider cuts us off, goes offline or goes bankrupt, we can just buy new virtual servers from the next provider. Then we only have to upload the VM-images and reconfigure the load-balancer to get the site up and running again.
