Cloud computing has been hyped for a long time — Gartner analysts suggest we’re at the end of its first phase — and the advantages of moving from traditional datacenter build-outs to provide scalability and performance have become quite evident.
But what about security and critical operations your company depends on? Can you afford to risk these in exchange for the flexibility provided by third-party cloud providers?
Private clouds require companies to purchase and build all software and infrastructure (rather than ‘renting’ it from a third-party) but if your data is your business, control and security are critical. The same goes if you’re part of an industry that must conform to strict security and data privacy controls, such as health care (HIPPA), financial (Sarbanes Oxley), or enterprise ecommerce.
And for companies at an enterprise level regardless of industry, it can make far better sense to own a dedicated cloud environment maintained on your own network. But what are the determinants?
In this webinar, we’re going to take a critical look at several use cases for private clouds and talk to industry experts why private clouds are — and aren’t — appropriate in today’s dev-heavy environment.
By the end of this webinar, you’ll:
- Understand resource-provisioning issues that can arise from public clouds
- Mitigate the remote access problems so your users don’t riot during weather emergencies and long weekends.
- Get recommendations on building a better private cloud infrastructure that can adapt and grow just as quickly as public cloud offerings.
