Enterprises are realising the benefits of cloud computing for short-term projects, such as proofs of concept, development and start-ups. In many instances, the public cloud for IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) provides all that’s required: rapid deployment and ‘pay as you go’ flexibility. However, issues arise over aspects such as security, reliability and cost control if the pilot project goes beyond its anticipated timescale or needs to roll out and become permanent.

This White Paper considers these issues and also examines how cloud computing can be utilised to offer a better business case for short term projects, while avoiding the shortcomings of many public cloud offerings.
