This is precisely the problem my company has run into regarding scaling, and it doesn't change for an external cloud such as EC2, or internal infrastructure built on VMWare or POS (plain old servers). We have a need to be able to temporarily scale our environments based on periodic business cycles, but cannot due to restrictive licensing on some proprietary software. Our approach, which isn't necessarily recommended, is to try to find a balance between making he executives angry about the downtime or lack of capacity, and making those same execs angry about spending too much money.
