The point of the answers you've been given is that the phrase "scale into
the cloud" is basically gibberish.  There's no clear definition of "the
cloud", and depending on what you think "the cloud" actually is, you could
require very different solutions.

Practically, what you probably want is a way to create lots of Erlang nodes
running a very simple program which can receive code updates and run them. 
There's some examples of this sort of thing in /Programming Erlang/, and
probably lots of other places, too.
