There’s a lot to consider when it comes to cloud computing solutions and their role in your IT environment. Key factors to consider include your budget, the amount of data that you need to store and how long you need to store it, required performance, and security required in your industry. There’s also the cloud deployment models that are available that can address some or all of these factors – public cloud computing, private cloud computing, and a combination of them both in a hybrid cloud deployment. But how do you choose the best options for your organization?

ASG has introduced two new resources in the last few months that can help you on your cloud computing journey.

1. Free eBook: Understanding the Cloud – What You Need to Know Before Diving In

The cloud is a complex offering. Unlike many other technologies, cloud providers don’t try to hide the complexity from customers. In fact, the deeper you go, the more complicated it can become. That’s why moving to the cloud should be a progression rather than a one-step process.

Making informed decisions about public cloud providers requires an in-depth understanding of cloud computing—not only its advantages and use cases, but how cloud providers create and market their products and how you can best maximize the benefits and minimize the risks. This complimentary eBook provides a starting point for this process.

You’ll discover why moving to the cloud should be a progression, how cloud providers create their products so you can make more informed decisions about which cloud offering is right for you. and better understand the caveats of using public cloud resources that aren’t always clear to new cloud customers.

2. Free workshop: Cloud Strategy and IT Transformation Workshop

This guided discussion will allow you to explore your unique challenges and learn how and where cloud computing solutions can benefit your organization.

You’ll discover the true costs of cloud computing solutions, the value in server-less infrastructure, the investment needed to realize true automation, the real benefits of Software-Defined Data Centers (SDDC), and how you can build a functional roadmap to predictable and maintainable IT infrastructure.
