Is Cloud Infrastructure in Your Future?
If yours is like most businesses, building out infrastructure is not at the top of your to-do list. You don’t build roads or bridges. You don’t generate your own electricity and you don’t run your own telephone lines. So, why should you operate your own data center? With the advent of cloud computing, this is becoming a question many businesses like yours are beginning to ask. Indeed, cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) is expected to grow 45 percent in 2014, according to data published in March by Gartner Inc. IaaS enables you to buy infrastructure — servers, storage and networking — in much the same way as you would for your own data center except you’re paying on a recurring basis and only for what you use. Is a cloud infrastructure right for you? This Report will discuss the benefits, drivers and use cases for moving to IaaS.
