In those games, the key is balancing the use of resources for defense against offence. Similarly, taking advantage of public cloud means balancing rapid build-out, while not forgetting to defend your resources.

- management time,
- set-up time,
- the need for additional management instances. If not properly addressed, can burden projects being moved to, or created on, public cloud.
