    I love it! This perspective really plays to the fact that cloud success is most often a direct result of taking the time to assess organization needs (plenty of tools available to help like the one VMWare and HP offer for SMB), and then develop a strategic plan. Of course any good plan should be able to evolve as the organization grows.

    Great stuff! We also believe that for an organization to see the maximum benefit out of moving to the cloud, it needs to pick the applications that are best suited for the move. In our experience, the best fits tend to be scale-out load balanced applications with stateless instances and batch processing applications. Often, true clouds are limited in the benefits they can provide to legacy applications, since these applications do not accommodate elasticity and do not tolerate the more unpredictable availability of any single server that the cloud datacenter operations model implies.

    Great blog and I like how you use the onion as a metaphor.
