Power can deploy applications which have no web front-end (e.g. trading systems, modeling systems, payment processing, client-server, messaging apps, etc). Power has an image configuration system, a scripting template system, an image library for re-using template, and a way to dynamically define multi-VM architectures that span clouds.
