Cloud computing is transforming businesses. It is offering new tools and services to quickly address changing business needs with highly effective architectural, delivery, and sourcing options. Join us to explore the following trends: Public, Private and Hybrid Clouds
- Private Cloud:
* Enable a new model for IT delivery and consumption. Continue with traditional on-premise infrastructure, but allow your organization to be flexible, scalable and provide automation
- Public Cloud:
* Migrate email, calendaring, IM, SharePoint to the cloud. This includes detail assessments, migration planning, and building the infrastructure, like ADFS, needed to support a successful migration to Office 365.
* Navigate and understand Azure services whether it’s about extending your datacenter by creating virtual machines and networks on Azure, leveraging Azure DR services, or extend your System Center environment to the cloud with Azure.
- Hybrid Cloud:
* Integration of public and on premise infrastructure.
Available cloud services and technologies are constantly changing and enabling new use cases and deployment scenarios. This session will help you separate the marketing, the FUD and the reality. Perhaps more importantly we’ll be able to talk about which cloud technologies may make sense for you and what steps you’ll need to take for a successful deployment
