What’s the best technical tip you have today for implementing a cloud deployment?

Start small and get a feeling with what cloud means

When considering using the Cloud, what do you tell people if they aren’t sure about moving to the Cloud?

Just do it!  I usually talk to ISV’s and IT is not there core business. Windows Azure can help them to skip parts of the IT part.

Others I ask how flexible their current IT is and how frustrating that can be some times.

Do you have a blog/website link to Cloud related Tips or deployment stories you would like to share?

Speaking from your experience, what words of advice do you have for new MVP’s?

First of all, just do it. Second, talk about a subject you know and present it with passion. And if you don’t know, you don’t know. It is like presenting for a customer ;-)
