A machine image is not the only deployment model to be sure, but is the
kind of deployment model you need if you're offering something as a cloud
service. I'm a big fan of the AWS Marketplace which of course is based on
this kind of model. (I'm also about to make the stand-alone Myrrix server
available this way as a test of this model.)
