Lee, you say that " a private cloud can also sometimes be more economical than using public cloud." This is something we found at recently when we had to choose between AWS/Rackspace-hosted offerings and a DIY approach: http://engineering.thetrainline.com/2013/01/30/why-we-built-an-on-premise-private-cloud-for-software-test-and-integration/ "[We built a] ...private (on-premise) PaaS cloud platform. The outcome of the 8 month project was a fully automated and repeatable infrastructure and software build process that reduced the environment build time from 12 weeks down to 4.5 hours, achieving ROI within 8 months." I think other readers might find some useful real-world experience there. Matthew
