On a live system, it is quite another story. You can't just remotely try 3.3 Billion passwords per second.. You'll be locked out after 10 attempts or so.
Here's an example of something extending Powershell. VMWare released a module for PowerShell that allows for control of VMWare env using Powershell.
#Load VMWare snap-in for powershell
LoadSnapin -PSSnapinName "VMware.VimAutomation.Core"
#Create VM from template and then start it
$myNewVMName = "NewVM_01"
$myTemplate = Get-Template "TemplateName"
$strDestinationHost = "ESX01"
$myNewVM = New-VM -Name $myNewVMName -Template $myTemplate -VMHost (Get-VMHost $strDestinationHost)
VMWare created a really awesome extension to Powershell, that allows for all sorts of inheritance and piping. Microsoft created a rather poorly implemented Active Directory extension for Powershell (can't pipe or inherit on things I would expect to be able to)... MS could have used the VMWare example to make a better AD extension.
We'll also need:
$10/mo for the music artists
$10/mo for the record label
$10/mo for movie script writers
$10/mo for actors
$10/mo for movie publishers
$10/mo for software developers
$10/mo for software companies
Did I miss anything?
Essentially, the "Cloud" has three main points:
It is a set of infrastructure resources.
It is dynamically provisioned.
It is self-service.
Note that it has nothing to do with whether the resources are internal or external. I run an "internal" cloud at my company.
