It is recommended for quick prototypes and development environments where you need to provision virtual machines quickly and easily, billing and costing have so many options and scenarios where you can choose from. It is sometimes hard to troubleshoot problems occurring for the networking part of the virtual machine where you need to be very careful especially if you are using VPN scenarios.
