Why?!?!?!

I could write a book about it, but in short, these are different when going from v2p or p2v:

Monitoring
A physical environment requires assuming responsibility for additional health monitoring: CPU temperature, environment temperature, voltage, etc.

Provisioning
In a cloud environment spinning up new servers, duplicating instances and decommissioning applications are way different than in the real world.

Backup and recovery
No more snapshots of the VM instance...

Physical security
Suddenly you have to worry about someone getting to your rack and physically removing a disk unit
