What is driving expansion to the cloud? In most cases, it's cost. But for many enterprise IT organizations, it is about agility, efficiency, and productivity.
The research firm, 451 Group says, "Cloud is a way of using technology, not a technology in itself," and, in many cases, IT organizations have chartered new courses on their own to reach the same value as the hyper-scale cloud solution providers. Although, as with any DIY solution, comes caveat emptor. As any do-it-yourselfer will attest, at some point you must make adjustments, fixes, and, in some cases, scrap it and build it all over again. This is the nature of DIY. However, in today's competitive marketplace, time and resources are limited, and for IT to be more agile, efficient, and productive, DIY may not be the best course of action moving forward.
In this webinar, we will look at the trends of cloud and how building a secure, compliant cloud based on validated and converged infrastructures will be the way IT expands its way beyond the data center, into the cloud.
