MySQL Growing Faster in the Cloud

It's been amazing to see the growth of MySQL in the cloud.  I'm seeing more customers moving to cloud providers that are offering MySQL platforms running in Virtual Machines.  It's interesting to see the way the cloud providers are configuring and delivering the platforms.  Virtualization is going to continue to be the deployment method for the delivering of systems in the cloud.  There is currently an evolution of best practices as databases are getting deployed in the cloud.
