Thanks Andreas,

That's well put I guess. I  always respect your input.

But after your feedback, I realised, having a max calls is exactly this...
you are rating your system for max calls, and not letting it over that.
And that is far less complicated than looking at disk load.

So if you are going to use Cloud, ensure you have guaranteed IO. By the
way, I saw a recent email saying Amazon is now selling such services for
their Windows/Linux Virtual Machines.
