Re: Should we be cloud-centric or workload-centric?
In my humble opinion, it's also a matter of how agressive and brave you are as the decision maker from IT OPS department. Are you going to fully trust these automated software packages? Are they really reliable to complete the work you desired? Can they alleviate the operation burden to some extent?

Re: Should we be cloud-centric or workload-centric?
Yes that is true and it is hard to imagine that any service can support what most individual manufactures struggle to do on its own and yet a third part is going to achive this, cloud or not?

Re: Should we be cloud-centric or workload-centric?
When you think about it, the concept of unified orchestration and monitoring both makes perfect sense and is a bit scary. You're putting a LOT of trust in this software package. One could see how things could go very right, or very wrong very fast.

Should we be cloud-centric or workload-centric?
Enterprise IT is still concentrating on achieving a single cloud-centric method of operations, while GigaSpaces proposes a workload-centric method -- across tools and across clouds. Right now, it's approach is good for OpenStack. To come: more tools, VMware vCloud environments, other public clouds. Docker plug-in available and could help. GigaSpaces shifted focus of Cloudify off Amazon, whrere it also works, probably because of AWS' launch of OpsWorks one year after Cloudify got started.
