The cloud access (the EC2-based cloud access to be exact) is much more comfortable to use than it was in the previous versions. Additionally, you can simultaneously use several different clouds from the same portal. For example, Amazon and a private academic cloud can be used at the same time and the administrators don't need to install additional Euca2ools software to prepare master DCI Bridge.
