Organisations need to look beyond the cloud’s generic savings and flexibility for a service that is reliable, accessible and secure in the long term.
Enterprises are realising the benefits of cloud computing for short-term projects and in some cases, the public cloud 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. How can cloud computing be effectively utilised to offer a better business case for short term projects, while avoiding the shortcomings of many public cloud offerings?
This white paper addresses topics such as:
- Finding the right cloud strategy to deliver successful short term projects
- How to deploy a flexible pay-as-you-go cloud model with enterprise grade Service Level Agreements that can be applied quickly to multiple locations in Asia
- Findings from a recent survey of IT professionals in Singapore and Hong Kong on the issues they face with cloud adoption - and how you can avoid the same cloud adoption issues.
- How Vodafone Hosting solutions can provide flexible computing that allows you to flex up or down your company’s storage space and computing power, depending on the need.
