1. A computer-implemented method, comprising:
initiating, in response to one or more requests received via one or more programmatic interfaces of a cloud computing environment, a launch procedure of a virtual machine, wherein the launch procedure comprises (a) one or more writes whose payloads are to be stored at a first category of storage and (b) an operation dependent on an indication of a completion of a particular write of the one or more writes;
caching a payload of the particular write temporarily at a second category of storage; and
performing the operation (a) after the payload has been cached and an indication of completion of the particular write has been generated and (b) prior to storing the payload at the first category of storage.
