Not an either/or
Key takeaways for me here is that the rent/buy decision not an either/or and you should not obsess about renting space in the public cloud just to save money. It's all about meeting those SLAs at the lowest cost, however you can do that.

You don't have to commit just yet
The money line here should you decide to buy on-premises and experiment in the cloud: "Your investments in a private cloud aren't throwaway costs, because they can be used to serve other business needs if you decide to leverage the public cloud." It seems you can play it both ways for a while until your sure you need to go one way or the other to satisfy SLAs at the lowest possible cost.
