very clear statement and I couldn't agree more to the appliance topic as a stable purpose build solution, as we had the experience with Datapower and the discussions about Cloudburst.
Since you mentioned the XaaS models it is interesting to read about your "looking into" for appliances that are purpose built to do hybrid cloud connectivity. As you know the current start up firms offer this either as appliance or as SaaS/PaaS/Cloud Integration.
Regarding your attached figure and the "Function as a Service" model - in with cases would you offer the "hybrid cloud connectivity" not as an appliance but more as a virtual appliance or a pure service?
