You've seen one cloud, you've seen 'em all
All clouds offerings are pretty much equal ... right? Nope, not even close. As CloudEndure, a cloud migration and disaster recovery provider, points out in its whitepaper on migrating to the AWS cloud, each cloud setup or provider brings its unique set of strengths and shortcomings. A private cloud, for instance, may offer greater flexibility but less scalability. And with a public cloud, if you're already invested in a particular vendor you'll have an easier migration journey by sticking with the same vendor's public cloud offering.

On number 5, you can tweak the app to run on some set virtual server in the cloud, or you can right-size the virtual server through experience and performance feedback. Recommencd the latter. Maybe it's a chicken and egg problem.
