Ten Topics to Discuss with your Cloud Provider
Find the “just right” cloud for your business. For this white paper, we will focus on existing applications (vs. new application services) that require high levels of performance and security, but that also enable customers to meet specific cost expectations.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of cloud services available to organizations. In many cases, the capabilities of the service, adjusted for cost, matter more to decision makers than the infrastructure itself. As an example, the underlying infrastructure that supports common business software such as Salesforce, Microsoft Office 365, is rarely scrutinized, as the products are trusted solely on the brand’s reputation.
