    To avoid FUD, a few architectural definitions and comparisons would assist understanding how application platform infrastructure must change to best support cloud characteristics. For example, linking Cloud Characteristics with Platform as a Service capabilities ( see http://blog.cobia.net/cobiacomm/2012/05/30/cloud-native-paas-realizes-cloud-characteristics/ ) and describing Cloud Native instead of Cloud Washed ( see http://blog.cobia.net/cobiacomm/2012/05/31/cloud-native-paas-or-cloud-washed-paas/ ) and describing the Total Cost of Ownership benefits accruing when using multi-tenant, shared container PaaS ( see http://blog.cobia.net/cobiacomm/2012/05/13/paas-tco-and-paas-roi-multi-tenant-shared-container-paas/ )
