Navigating the Cloud Conundrum – public vs. hybrid vs. private clouds
Before enterprises can truly embrace a public, hybrid or private cloud, they must understand one critical metric: how to make apples-to-apples comparisons between the costs - because the truth is, cloud deployments won’t always be the better, cheaper, faster option.
This vendor-neutral session will describe how IT can decipher which cloud (public, hybrid or private) makes the most financial sense for their specific business needs, and teach attendees how to provide IT decision makers with the necessary metrics to build an intelligent business case for moving applications and infrastructure components to a public or private cloud.
This session will give attendees greater insight into whether or not a private or public – or hybrid – cloud solution makes the most financial sense for their organization. Using real-world case studies, attendees will learn how to make a metrics-based comparison of different cloud offerings, thus increasing the ROI of their decisions.
