Cloud Deployment Best Practices

We just released our final “Sun” paper on Cloud Deployment and Packaging Concepts and Best Practices.  Have a look!

I pick on image-based deployments a bit.  My primary concern is two fold:

what you deploy is not always what you manage — the closer you can get alignment the better

don’t forget the model — whether programmatic or hand-tooled.

There’s some great “on-demand” technologies out there like DSC (dsc.kenai.com for now) that illustrate some alternative application packaging models.  I invite you to have a look.  There are benefits in scale, manageability, fail-in-place architecture, etc.
