We’ve just released a new white paper, Low Risk Adoption of Cloud Infrastructure for Enterprises. You can download it here.
I’ll discuss this topic in a serious of posts, but I’ll lay out the basic argument here.
At nScaled, we think the scales have tipped towards cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) enough that most businesses don’t need to be convinced of the benefits of moving some or all of their data center infrastructure to a cloud provider. Likewise, we think most CIOs aren’t trying to explain to the CEO and CFO what cloud is, or why they should evaluate cloud, but rather CIOs are explaining HOW their company should adopt cloud infrastructure: what servers and workloads should move to the cloud, and when. And how they’ll migrate to the cloud while minimizing risk to the organization (technology risk, business risk, financial risk).
The white paper goes on to examine what evaluation criteria should be used to identify initial cloud applications, and how to evaluate cloud IaaS vendors based on their ability to support a phased migration that minimizes risk. I’ll address these subject in my next post.
