do on a physical space with a single server. You just have to use
remote-desktop to get into it, and then it's all the same.

But if they want to use RDS, auto-scaling, and other Amazon-provided
services then things can get confusing.

So the answer to your question really depends upon what the client
thinks they'll be getting by you taking your existing product "to the
