Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.
