* What is "The Cloud" - At least in the context of this presentation. * What "The Cloud" is good for * Why it doesn't work for small to medium businesses. * What was this client running? * Why was it expensive? * How I planned and delivered the move.... * .... and made it better than Amazon * .... and made it cost less than any "Cloud" offering * How open source software made high-availability easy


A tale of how I migrated one client out of Amazon EC2 to save them money, despite their insistence that "The Cloud" was the answer - no matter what question was asked.
