    Respect or aspect?

    Hey there,
    I`m sorry about posting this subject again, but I was reading some topics about it and can`t get a clear "answer".
    The problem is that I`m writing a article and need to put this phrase on it: " Both technical and operational respects/aspects of cloud computing are based on utility computing, [....]" .
    So the question is, should I use "respects" or "aspects"? From what I saw, aspect should be used to show or emphasize a point of view, while respect to "exclude" other aspects, giving attention only to the wanted subject. If I am correct (probably not ) I think that "respect" might fit better in the sentence....

    Use "aspects."

    "Respects" is used in this meaning usually only in set phrases, like "in some respects."
