Why to go with Infrastructure as a Service?

Over the time cost of opportunity also not help us because of sudden increase of online users for our hosted web application. So what are the options? raise your cost of opportunity so that you will never loose any customer when their is sudden increase on users, but this will decrease my profit drastically and sustainability.
