Since the Cloud provider is basically selling the one size fits all, by default they are most likely going to buy a lot of the same sorts of equipment, run it all the same way, and follow the same paths to set up boxes and containers. In a way, the economies of scale guarantee a certain amount of stability in the Cloud. So if your applications fit this environment, it may be worth investigating. Consider adopting a framework for development, such as a service­ oriented architecture model that specifies that application developers must follow common guidelines.

Internal providers may not have the same incentive. There is momentum building for internal adoption of such certifications as well because of the impact of privacy laws and compliance with regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes­Oxley. This focus on customer service should accelerate as more of the infrastructure transitions to a Cloud model. The cost of certification would be borne by the provider’s customer base, not necessarily the organization. By certifying a data center process for hire, the cost is shared among all of the tenants of the data center.
