Cloud Webinar Series
Part 1: Cut Through the Cloud Clutter


If you've been focused on consolidation, virtualization, and utilization, you may be limiting your own cloud potential.

In part 1 of this series, you'll learn how to become focused on agility, scalability, and IT service delivery to ensure a successful private or hybrid cloud deployment that makes the most of your existing virtualization and consolidation efforts.

We'll start with planning--determining goals and objectives--and then transition to hands-on work-- that prepares you for flexible application provisioning and delivery across shared resource pools by evaluating solutions. By the end of this webinar, you'll know how to:
  • Set cloud goals based on business objectives - including security and compliance requirements
  • Select the most suitable target workloads for evolving to the cloud
  • Plan technology and process evolution to the cloud
  • Begin technology evaluations, including proof-of-concepts, as appropriate
Registrants will receive a link to the on-demand recording after the live event and a corresponding whitepaper for Part 1 of the From virtualization to cloud series.
