Rich Choi recently posted a go live checklist for CRM 2011 Online over at the Microsoft CRM Online Team blog.  This is a great checklist that contains a lot of the gotchas when deploying CRM 4 or CRM 2011 to a new environment.  While the article is tailored for 2011 Online, the recommendations apply to On-Premise and Partner Hosted (Private Cloud) solutions.  I highly recommend reviewing these recommendations for your customers and environments.
