In our opinion true Cloud solutions are to complicated and dangerous for small webhosts. We've seen some big hosts sweating quite a lot when their CEPH clusters went down and urgently developing an internal fix for CEPH.
If you were depending on the community to get out of a similar situation it could take weeks.
For smaller hosts that don't host thousands of servers it's better to stick with easier solutions like nas or san.
