The problems that some early adopters are having is that they chew up their cloud utilities too fast and it's like going over your cellphone plan's limit. With the cloud there is a new sort of impedance mismatch to deal with. According, to Jonathan, lifecycle management and modularity in the JVM will be very important in transforming Java for the cloud.
