tbh, the only place I've seen Cloud with practical use is software houses who need to spin up large numbers of VMs for a short period of time for massive automated testing and then get rid of them once they're done.

Every other industry I've worked in, there's been zero cost benefit to going cloud-y - and often, it'll cost somewhere in the region of 25% more than a good in-house option would over three years.
