@figuerres: True dat.

I WANTED so bad to recommend and use Azure but alas, I cannot Sad

For me it's a real head-scratcher. Any organization I can think of who might benefit would have to disregard a non-trivial investment in existing infrastructure. Sure an incremental/hybrid approach is viable but, again, how/why would you sell that? Perhaps the less-than-scrupulous technologist could make the sell. I dunno :-/

Anyone sold this? What am I missing?
